Boris Johnson's hopes of winning a majority are hanging in the balance with just two days until the general election after a new poll showed the Tory lead over Labour is now just seven points.
The Savanta ComRes survey, conducted between December 6-8 puts the Tories on 43 per cent and Labour on 36 per cent.
If such numbers were replicated on polling day it could lead to a hung parliament, with the Electoral Calculus website suggesting it would leave the Conservatives a handful of seats short of a majority.
Tory strategists are concerned Labour may not need to gain a single seat to oust Mr Johnson with the party's private polling showing losing just 12 seats to the SNP and Lib Dems could put Jeremy Corbyn in Number 10.
Mr Johnson will today try to get his campaign back on track after a disastrous day for the Tories which saw the PM embroiled in a damaging row over the treatment of a sick four-year-old boy who was photographed lying on the floor of Leeds General Infirmary.
