New YouGov Poll – Post Budget, Labour’s Lead is Cut to 4%
There is a new YouGov poll published in today’s Sun newspaper showing Labour’s lead over the Conservatives being cut to just 4%:
Changes shown are compared to the last daily YouGov poll I reported on 20 March.
This is the first post-Budget poll and Labour should be concerned at their seeming inability to open up a decent lead over the Conservatives. It seems that the public are unconvinced by Ed Miliband and his senior team, and their lack of any positive alternative to government policies. The Conservatives were certainly braced to be substantially behind Labour by now and it is encouraging to note that the public seem to be accepting the argument that government action to tackle the deficit was necessary.
I have received some interesting intelligence on the Reading Labour party which I will post shortly when I have confirmed it with other sources.
