New YouGov Poll – Labour Lead Stuck at 7%
There is a new YouGov poll for today’s Sunday Times newspaper which shows Labour’s lead holding at 7% following a week of double digit leads for Labour in the daily Sun YouGov polls:
Conservative 35% (no change)
Labour 42% (no change
Lib Dem 9% (no change)
UKIP 7% (no change)
This poll confirms last Sunday’s YouGov poll which had exactly the same vote shares for the two big parties and the two minnows. It appears that after a period of UKIP leading the Lib Dems we have settled into a pattern of the Lib Dems being a few percentage points ahead of them. The Conservatives will want to see a Lib Dem recovery taking votes back off Labour to erode Labour’s modest lead.
This poll also confirms that Ed Miliband remains a drag on the Labour vote share. Miliband has slipped from -16% to -23% approval rating, while Cameron is in the least bad position on -19%. Clegg languishes at -53%.
Changes shown are compared to the last YouGov poll I reported on 28 Oct.
