New YouGov London Poll – Tories Set for Big Gains Across the Capital
There is a new YouGov poll in tonight’s London Evening Standard newspaper showing voting intentions across the capital. Changes shown are compared to the 2005 election result in London:
Conservative 39% (up 7%)
Labour 35% (down 4%)
Lib Dem 17% (down 5%)
The newspaper suggests that on a uniform swing the Conservatives would gain a dozen seats from the other parties, including 3 from the Lib Dems (and the seat I contested last time of Sutton and Cheam). This is probably a conservative estimate, as a number of surveys have suggested that the Conservatives are doing better than average in their target seats.
