New Populus Poll – Labour Lead Slashed to 5%
There is a new Populus poll in tomorrow’s Times which shows the Conservatives slashing Labour’s lead to just 5%:
Conservative 35% (up 5%)
Labour 40% (down 5%)
Lib Dem 9% (down 1%)
The poll detail also shows Cameron and Osborne boosting their lead for economic competence over Balls and Miliband from 4% to 15%.
This poll suggests a significant Conference boost for David Cameron and the Conservatives but we need to see whether this is borne out in other polls.
