There has been an update to Electoral Calculus published on 1 May 2016 at 

Labour have lost noticeable support during April, reversing their gains from March, according to the pollsters. But the beneficiary has been UKIP rather than the Conservatives, who are now up 4pc to 16pc support. This is the best polling for UKIP for over a year and better than their general election result. However, in terms of seats, this benefits the Conservatives (+13 seats) more than UKIP (+1 seat). 

The most recent polls from the six pollsters who published polls in April are: 

BMG Research has Con 36, Lab 31, Lib 7, UKIP 16, Green 5 ComRes (IoS, SMirror) has Con 35, Lab 30, Lib 8, UKIP 16, Green 4 ICM (The Guardian) has Con 36, Lab 31, Lib 7, UKIP 16, Green 4 Ipsos-MORI (Evening Standard) has Con 38, Lab 35, Lib 6, UKIP 11, Green 3 YouGov (Times) has Con 30, Lab 33, Lib 6, UKIP 20, Green 3 Opinium has Con 38, Lab 30, Lib 5, UKIP 15, Green 5 

The averages: Con 36 (nc), Lab 30 (-4), Lib 6 (-2), UKIP 16 (+4), Grn 4 (+1). 

The new national prediction is that the Conservatives will have a majority of 8 seats, winning 329 seats (+13 seats since 3 April).
