New YouGov Poll – Labour Lead at 9%

There is a new YouGov poll for today’s Sun newspaper which shows Labour’s lead at 9%, up from the last one I reported but less than other recent polls:

                   Conservative               34% (down 1%)

                   Labour                         43% (up 2%)

                                                     Lib Dem                         8% (down1%)

                                                     UKIP                               8% (up 1%)

There have been some significant variations amongst the different pollsters recently with Populus showing a 15% Labour lead while the same poll showed that the public wanted David Cameron to remain Prime Minister by a ratio of 2:1 over David Miliband!

Party Conference season is a time when polls can show unusual fluctuations and I would not take ANY poll too seriously until all the major parties have completed their conferences.

Changes shown are compared to the last YouGov poll I reported on 2 Sep.
