British Prime Minister Theresa May's once formidable lead has been eroded though her Conservative Party could still be on course to win a majority of seats in Parliament, an opinion poll and an electoral model showed Friday.The Ipsos MORI poll put the Conservatives at 45 percent, down 4 points from a comparable survey on May 18, with Labour up 6 points to 40 percent.A respected model made by Michael Ashcroft, who once served as treasurer of the Conservative Party, showed Friday that May's likely majority had declined from a week ago but estimated that she would still increase her majority to 60 seats.A failure to win the June 8 election with a large majority would weaken May just as Brexit talks are due to begin while the loss of her majority would pitch British politics into turmoil.May praised her performance when she stood in for the prime minister at a televised election debate Wednesday against all the leaders of Britain's other main parties, after May herself declined to attend.
