New YouGov Poll – Labour Lead at 7%

There is a new YouGov poll for today’s Sunday Times newspaper which shows Labour’s lead holding at 7% in line with other recebt polls showing a narrowing of the Labour lead:

                   Conservative               35% (up 1%)

                   Labour                         42% (up 1%)

                                                     Lib Dem                          9% (up 1%)

                                                     UKIP                                7% (down 3%)

This poll supports the suggestion that Labour’s lead is fragile and is now in the 6-10% range rather than the 10%+ leads we had become used to earlier this year. The poll also finds a big increase in the number of people saying the government is managing the economy well (up 5%).

Changes shown are compared to the last YouGov poll I reported on 11 Oct.
