New YouGov Poll – Tories Take 3% Lead

There is a new YouGov poll published in tomorrow’s Sun newspaper showing the Conservatives taking a 3% lead over Labour:

                   Conservative               41% (up 1%)

                   Labour                        38% (no change)
                                                       Lib Dem                        8% (down 2%)
For the Conservatives to be 3% behind Labour at this stage of the political cycle would be amazing, to be 3% AHEAD of Labour at this stage is almost incredible. We will have to see if this is sustained or whether it is an outlier.
Changes shown are compared to the last YouGov poll I covered on 11 January.

  1. I expected this given the speech by Balls last weekend giving Labour Core Supporters the news they DIDN’T want to hear and the ongoing ineptitude of Ed Miliband. Good to see the Lib-Dems share dropping too. Now will this Tory lead last and will it increase? That’s the question.
