New YouGov Poll – UKIP Overtakes Lib Dems
There is a new YouGov poll in today’s Sun newspaper showing the Labour lead jumping to 11% but more sensationally UKIP have overtaken the Lib Dems:
Conservative 32% (down 4%)
Labour 43% (up 3%)
Lib Dem 8% (down 1%)
UKIP 9% (up 3%)
Labour’s lead is pretty big but all the focus will be on the UKIP result. As usual with any striking result some caution should be exercised to see whether this is a one-off or a new consistent polling position.
The poll also suggests that Conservatives are losing support among the over 60’s to UKIP. However, let’s see what the polls over the next couple of days show before draawing too many conclusions as I suspect this poll to be an “outlier”!
Changes shown are compared to the last YouGov poll I covered on 10 April.
