In the run up to the next United Kingdom general election, various organisations are expected to carry out opinion polling to gauge voting intention. Results of such polls are displayed in this article. Most of the polling companies listed are members of the British Polling Council (BPC) and abide by its disclosure rules.
The date range for these opinion polls is from the previous general election, held on 12 December 2019, to the present day. Under fixed-term legislation, the next general election is scheduled to be held in May 2024.
Most opinion polls do not cover Northern Ireland, since its 18 seats are not contested by the political parties standing for election in the rest of the United Kingdom.
Poll results are listed in the table below in reverse chronological order. The highest percentage figure in each polling survey is displayed in bold, and the background shaded in the leading party's colour. The 'party lead' column shows the percentage-point difference between the two parties with the highest figures. In the instance of a tie, no figure is shaded but both are displayed in bold.
The parties with the largest numbers of votes in the 2019 general election are listed here. Other parties are listed in the "Other" column.
