New YouGov Poll – Labour Lead Static at 8%

There is a new YouGov poll for tomorrow’s Sun newspaper which shows Labour’s lead constant at 8% with the Lib Dems pulling away from UKIP:

                   Conservative               34% (no change)

                   Labour                         42% (no change)

                                                     Lib Dem                       10% (up 1%)

                                                     UKIP                               6% (down 1%)

Over the last week Labour’s lead has oscillated between 8% and 11%.

Changes shown are compared to the last YouGov poll I reported on 19 July.

  1. I also read that Queen Anne is dead! The Labour lead has averaged about 8% for some weeks now even with an un-dynamic Leader such as Ed Miliband. Likewise we have the see-saw between the Lib-Dems and UKIP.

    As I have said before we really need a Parliamentary by-election in a Tory Marginal constituency to provide a real test of just how ready to win Labour really is, of UKIP’s impact on the Conservative Vote, and if the Lib-Dems are really as unpopular as one is led to believe.

  2. So Labour’s lead is well down into single figures and with an Olympic bounce could fall further. We don’t need a by-election in a Tory marginal but one in a Labour or Lib Dem one could be very interesting. Maybe Chris Huhne will oblige us soon……
