Most voters think the Conservatives can still win the election, according to today's Independent/Harris opinion poll, writes John Rentoul.

Despite a buoyant 27-point lead for Labour, our poll finds that two-thirds of voters - 69 per cent - say the Tories can still win. While only 17 per cent think the election is "certainly not over yet", half of the electorate - 52 per cent - say "while Labour are favourites there is still a slight chance" the Tories can win.

A further 20 per cent think that the Tories have "no chance".

Labour has an average 24-point lead in the six main polls, compared with 18 points before winning the Wirral South by-election three weeks ago,
