But polls taken since the opposition Labour Party and May's Conservatives released their election manifestos have shown Labour catching up, worrying investors and pushing the pound down nearly 2 cents last week. The main opposition Labour Party's share of the vote was unchanged at 33 percent.
The research showed a two-point rise for the Labour over the past week, which means the party has narrowed the Tories' lead in the polls by more than 13 points since the start of the campaign, the Guardian reported.
However, what did prove highly accurate in forecasting the outcome of the 2015 General was my market skewed perception based on my house prices trend trajectory forecast that forecast the Conservatives would win the 2015 General Election with on a single digits majority of approx 328 against the actual outcome of 330.
But despite starting off strongly ahead in polls, the Conservative Party has been losing ground in recent days.
May has stuck to her strategy of trying to focus attention on Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, saying that he is unfit to helm Britain's Brexit negotiations when they begin in earnest later this month.
Asked if he could guarantee that all or a proportion of the one million jobs would go to British workers, Mr Corbyn said after the speech: "They would obviously be for people looking for work, the vast majority will be for people coming out of our schools and our colleges and our universities, and we will not allow anyone to only recruit overseas for jobs here".
"Meanwhile, Labour's support still relies a great deal on younger people, who in the past have proven less likely to vote". It's partly because support for third parties is low (although UKIP have only been a factor in one general election - 2015 - so it's not as if they were taking votes from the Tories in the 1980s and 1990s).
Theresa May remains voters' preferred choice for prime minister although her personal rating is down six points on 50%.
British Prime Minister Theresa May is on course to win Thursday's election by a much smaller margin than previously predicted, opinion polls showed on Saturday, as her campaign stumbled again, this time over taxation for the wealthy.
"We will protect the people of this country from any threat that they face anywhere in the world", he said.
When Theresa May announced a snap election in April, she was widely expected to register a landslide victory over its rival, the Labour Party, in the upcoming national elections.
"I think there's complete chaos going on at the top of the Government", he told reporters during a campaign visit to Lincoln.
