The Conservative party can hope for significant gains in Wales if there is a general election in the near future, a poll has shown.
That support has grown since July’s poll which showed a narrow Tory lead by two points.
If the swing affected all Welsh seats equally, the Conservatives could expect to win 17 constituencies in Wales.
They include Brecon & Radnorshire, which was lost to the Liberal Democrats in a by-election in August, as well as Newport West, where Labour held on earlier this year.
The Tories could also expect to win five seats in north-east Wales, including Clwyd South, where Boris Johnson was defeated when he stood there in 1997.
It appears Brexit is a big factor in how people will vote.
The poll found that 56% of Welsh voters consider it to be one of the most important election issues. 89% of people who say they will vote Conservative are in favour of leaving the European Union without a deal on 31 October.
- YouGov polled a representative sample of 1,032 Welsh voters between 10 and 14 October.
