"Realistically no one thinks Theresa May will not be Prime Minister, or that she will not have the majority she needs".
He pointed to Corbyn's emphasis on class, an issue he said so many "wanted to ignore" as a reason for his confidence in Corbyn's transformation of Labour and United Kingdom politics. "We all got it wrong in 2015 and we are all trying different methods to get it right this year", said Anthony Wells, a research director at YouGov.
"But we have to be prepared to stand up for Britain".
However the findings contrast sharply with a ComRes poll for the Independent and Sunday Mirror which still shows the Conservatives with a healthy 12 point advantage over Labour.
"It is clear that on contact with the voters, Mrs May is not going down well and she is losing ground in particular amongst middle-aged voters and female voters", Ben Page, chief executive of Ipsos MORI, told Reuters.
"Meanwhile, Labour's support still relies a great deal on younger people, who in the past have proven less likely to vote". "I think I can trust Keir Starmer with negotiations more than some other people who are undertaking those negotiations", he said.

There have been times when Brexit has felt like the elephant in the room during the campaign.
Theresa May has rejected accusations that she went back on her word by going to the polls, telling voters: "I had the balls to call an election". The Labour leader said: "Look, bombing is wrong, all bombing is wrong, of course I condemn it".
"The most likely outcome here is a Tory (Conservative) victory, but a Tory victory no longer certain of an increased majority", she said.
Theresa May remains voters' preferred choice for prime minister although her personal rating is down six points on 50%.
