New YouGov Poll – Labour Lead Steady at 8%
There is a new YouGov poll for today’s Sunday Times newspaper which shows Labour’s lead steady at 8% with the Lib Dems falling behind UKIP once again:
Conservative 34% (no change)
Labour 42% (no change)
Lib Dem 7% (down 1%)
UKIP 9% (up 2%)
Labour’s lead seems to have slipped back to under 10% from the previous heights of 12-14% we were seeing in polls a month ago. The Lib Dems and UKIP are continuing to fight it out for third place in YouGov polls, although most other pollsters find the Lib Dems firmly in third place with UKIP fourth.
In the detail of this poll the Conservatives are rather implausibly on 31% in Scotland, level with Labour and ahead of the SNP!
Changes shown are compared to the last YouGov poll I reported on 24 May.
