It has also been surging in Westminster polls, with one at the weekend showing the party top with 26 per cent support against 22 per cent for Labour and 17 per cent for the Tories.
Peterborough by-election: Farage's Brexit Party hopes to land first MP
Today's result is expected to be declared in the early hours between 2am and 4am. One Brexit Party source told MailOnline its activists had been 'working our nuts off' in the constituency, which has swapped between Tory and Labour hands for decades.

Fifteen candidates stood in Thursday's by-election in a constituency, which voted Leave by It has historically been a closely fought battle between Labour and the Conservatives. But with Theresa May's party in disarray over Brexit it looks likely to be a distant third this time around.
Both Labour and the Conservatives have campaigned hard ahead of the by-election, with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, former prime minister Gordon Brown and Tory big guns Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt all visiting the city in the lead-up. And while quite obviously in terms of the tendering they were less than we would have desired, anyone would have desired in terms of the loan in which they operated, I stand by everything that I've said, as has the Minister stood by everything she said.

The India Today- Axis poll was conducted from December 12 to There are three factors at play here. That though will be negated following a split among the Yadav and Muslim vote, a part of which will stay with the Mulayam-led SP Version 1.

If Akhilesh has his way and the SP and the Congress fight the election together, will the math change? Mulayam Singh Yadav with Amar Singh. Examine the vote-share projected in the India Today- Axis poll.
The math of an SP-Congress alliance is therefore not linear. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, one of the shrewdest politicians India has produced in three decades, saw the dangers early.
