YouGov Has May Falling Short of Majority

Prime Minister Theresa May is on track to win 305 seats in Britain’s parliament in an election on Thursday, 21 seats short of a 326-seat majority, according to a projection by polling company YouGov on Monday.

May’s Conservatives had 330 seats when the snap election was called in April.

On Saturday, YouGov said its model suggested the Conservatives were on course to win 308 seats.
