Support for the Brexit Party appears to be falling as it dropped four percentage points.
The polling by BMG for The Independent puts the Conservatives and Labour neck on neck on 28% and 27% with the Tories up 2% and Labour unchanged.
Unlike the Liberal Democrats, who are holding on to their boost in support since the European elections by increasing by an extra 1% to 18%, the Brexit Party are losing ground.
Their support has fallen by four points to just 14% after riding high in opinion polls previously.
The Green Party continues to hold on to their 6% of support, while UKIP is on 2% and the Independent Group for Change on 1%.
The Brexit Party's fall in popularity follows a week in which MEPs turned their backs on the Ode To Joy in the European parliament, and Ann Widdecombe compared their plight to slaves trying to break free from their owners.
