New YouGov Poll – UKIP Ahead of Lib Dems Again

There is a new YouGov poll in today’s Sunday Times newspaper showing UKIP moving ahead of the LDs once again:

                   Conservative               30% (down 2%)

                   Labour                         40% (no change)

                                                     Lib Dem                       11% (no change)

                                                     UKIP                             13% (up 2%)

A clear majority of people think that the present benefit system needs reform. Overall, 70% of people think the current system works badly and needs significant (38%) or major (32%) reform. 63% think that the benefit system is not strict enough and too open to fraud.

Changes shown are compared to the last YouGov poll I reported on 12 March.

  1. My main interest as I have said will be the impact of UKIP in the County Council Elections. There are none in Reading of course as the Old Berkshire Country Council was abolished, an idea I supported then and still do, with the 6 Unitary Authorities taking its place.

    Depending in what occurs in the next 24 hours I may be elsewhere when those election occur or still here and watching the results coming on on TV. I won’t be actively involved as to be honest I have no Political Party I can wholeheartedly support in the UK these days. I loathe Cameron and Cameronism, have seen though UKIP and disagree with some of Labour’s Dogmas on a number of issues and don’t even mention the Lib-Dems to me!
