In an online survey, 42.5 per cent of respondents said they were planning to vote for Mr Khan in next Thursday’s election.

But while 48.7pc admitted to being regular Labour voters, the party’s London Assembly candidate for Havering and Redbridge Ivana Bartoletti was neck and neck with Conservative candidate Keith Prince, both on 36.3pc.

The survey put Tory mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith on 32.5pc, with Green candidate Sian Berry third on 7.5pc.

Only 3.7pc of voters said they had not chosen a mayoral candidate yet.

We also asked readers which issues had been most influential in making their choice.

Unsurprisingly, six out of 10 said housing was one of the most important issues to them, with more than four out of 10 saying transport.

Almost one in four said immigration was a major issue in deciding, while almost one in five said the EU.

The candidate’s personality was an important factor for 24pc of respondents, while 26pc said they were sticking with their usual party.
