New YouGov Poll – Labour’s Lead Down to 7%

There is a new YouGov poll for tomorrow’s Sun newspaper which shows Labour’s lead further narrowing to 7% with the Lib Dems once again only just ahead of UKIP:

                   Conservative               35% (up 2%)

                   Labour                         42% (up 1%)

                                                     Lib Dem                        8% (down 3%)

                                                     UKIP                              7% (down 1%)

YouGov polls seem to be jumping about a bit at the moment with one on Sunday showing the Conservatives down to 29% but that now seems to be an outlier. The post-Budget fall in Conservative support appears to have been halted and even slightly reversed with most polls in recent days. Let’s see how this week pans out but Boris is looking increasingly odds on to win in London, which would be a big blow for Labour and Ed Miliband.

Changes shown are compared to the last YouGov poll I reported on 21 April.

  1. After yesterday’s Commons performances by Cameron and Miliband I should think the gap will narrow even more.
