New YouGov Poll – Labour Down but UKIP Still Third

Tonight’s YouGov poll for tomorrow’s Sun newspaper shows Labour’s lead being trimmed back to 9% but UKIP remaining ahead of the Lib Dems:

                   Conservative               32% (no change)

                   Labour                         41% (down 2%)

                                                     Lib Dem                         8% (no change)

                                                     UKIP                              9% (no change)

To have two successive polls showing the Lib Dems in fourth place (albeit from the same pollster) is interesting. Let’s see what the “gold standard” pollster ICM shows in its next findings.

Changes shown are compared to the previous YouGov poll in today’s Sun.

  1. Its beginning to look like these gains by UKIP are simply fed up Conservative voters moving to back a party that more properly reflects their views. The Conservative party ought to be worried that failing to do many of the things that were promised may cost them dearly come the next election. Remember how the polls changed very quickly when David Cameron used the veto…………..its not rocket science
