New YouGov Poll – UKIP Rise to 12% as Labour’s Lead is Cut
There is a new YouGov poll in today’s Sun newspaper showing an increase in UKIP’s support seemingly at Labour’s expense following the Eastleigh by-election:
Conservative 31% (down 1%)
Labour 40% (down 3%)
Lib Dem 12% (no change)
UKIP 12% (up 3%)
YouGov’s Peter Kellner has conducted an analysis of UKIP supporters who he finds to be older and poorer than Conservative supporters but also less right wing! Overwhelmingly UKIP supporters would prefer a Conservative Government led by David Cameron than a Labour one led by Ed Miliband.
Changes shown are compared to the last YouGov poll I reported on 17 February.
