The free fall in the Pound is seen as a result of heightened uncertainty over the election in June. Latest YouGov poll published late on Thursday showed that 43% voters plan to vote for Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative Party. That compares to the support for Labour Party at 38%. That is, just a mere 5% lead. Back in April when May announced the snap election, it's believed that the Conservative would have a landslide victory due to the over 20 point lead. A less than strong victory will weaken May's stance in Brexit negotiation with EU.
