New YouGov Poll – Tories and Labour on 40%

There is a new YouGov poll published tonight for tomorrow’s Sun newspaper showing the Conservatives and Labour neck and neck:

                   Conservative               40% (down 1%)

                   Labour                        40% (up 1%)
                                                    Lib Dem                       10% (no change)
This poll confirms the ongoing boost to David Cameron’s Conservatives following from the exercising of the veto in the EU.
Changes shown are compared to the last daily YouGov poll I covered on 13 December.

  1. Neither of the two main parties seem to be able to make the break and get to and maintain about 45% . BTW any breakdown for “others”?

  2. I do think your “random” selection of polls(those that always show your party doing better) is quite fantastic and always gives me a good laugh.

    • Always delighted to generate good cheer at this time of year!

      What do you think I have missed? I try to cover all reputable polls with the exception of YouGov, which, as I have explained before, I will only cover from time to time, as they are so frequent.

      Have a good Christmas.

    • Just in case you think I am ignoring it: YouGov tonight have Cons 40%, Lab 40% and LD 9%.

      That’s pretty much unchanged and showing Cameron’s Conservatives maintaining their post EU veto bounce!

      • I feel this is more an indication of how ineffectual Ed Milliband is as Labour Leader that he cannot obtain and hold 45% in the Polls, even with The Cuts and a Government perceived to be unliked.I do wonder what the Labour lead would be if they had a decent Leader although to be honest I cannot think of anyone on their front bench who is up to the mark. Now doubt Cameron is very happy about that!
