New YouGov Poll – Tories Cut Labour Lead to 6%
There is a new YouGov poll in today’s Sunday Times newspaper showing the Conservatives cutting Labour’s lead back to 6%:
Conservative 35% (up 2%)
Labour 41% (down 1%)
Lib Dem 12% (up 1%)
UKIP 7% (no change)
This is very much in accord with the ComRes poll I reported yesterday. It is worth noting that the Opinium poll in the Observer was largely conducted BEFORE David Cameron’s big EU speech and certainly before its contents were reported in the press. It is therefore now pretty irrelevant.
David Cameron continues to do better than the other two party leaders in his approval ratings which are -15%, well ahead of Ed Miliband on -26% who appears to be a drag on his party’s rating. Nick Clegg is on -51%.
Changes shown are compared to the last YouGov poll I reported on 20 January.
