However other polls have given Labour a much smaller lead
And other polls gave Labour a much smaller lead.
Deltapoll UK had them 19 points ahead, Survation 21 points, and Redfield & Wilton just 17 points.
One Tory told The Sun: “This is just one poll putting them way ahead so must be treated with caution.”
Voters were polled as the pound tumbled against the dollar.
Both the PM and Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng have yet to convince the public their tax-cutting, big borrowing strategy will work.
Panicking Tories fear a Labour landslide at the next general election, comparable to 1997 when Tony Blair enjoyed a 179 seat majority.
One Tory MP said: “It’s not a good start to crash the economy within days.
“I can’t see Liz seeing the year out at No10. It’s that serious.”
