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%)

                                                           UKIP                             TBC

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.

  1. as usual one poll contradicts another. Roll on the Corby and PCC Elections for a better indication of where the parties stand.
