newsonline - While the Conservatives and Labour battle it out for Number 10, recent polling reflects a changing mood from the electorate towards the smaller parties.

The latest YouGov poll suggests Reform UK have climbed within one point of the Conservatives, the Lib Dems are up four points, and Labour are dropping below 40%.

In 2017, the two big parties got 82% of the vote. Now, the combined Labour-Tory vote could be as low as 56%.

With the Green Party launching its manifesto today, on this episode of the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson and our deputy political editor Sam Coates dive into the dissatisfaction with Rishi Sunak and Sir Keir Starmer.

Plus, Scarlett Maguire, director at polling company JL Partners, discusses how well the smaller parties are doing.
