Theresa May was coming in as the 1/4 favorite to win the upcoming UK election while Jeremy Corbyn was listed at 3/1.  Some reports have May losing ground and recent terrorist attacks, including an attack on the London Bridge Saturday night, could impact the elections as well.

May’s lead had fallen to just below one point by Saturday with the election to take place Thursday June 8.

The pollsters, though, indicated vastly different outcomes for May: ranging from a landslide majority of over 100 seats to a YouGov model which estimated that May would win 308 seats, too few for a majority in the 650-seat parliament.

Her party's lead over the opposition Labour Party was in a range of 1-12 percentage points, according to six polls published on Saturday. Four showed her lead narrowing, one showed her lead unchanged and one, ORB, showed it widening to 9 points.
