New YouGov Poll – Labour’s Lead at 9%
There is a new YouGov poll in today’s Sunday Times newspaper showing the Labour lead increasing slightly to 9%:
Conservative 30% (down 1%)
Labour 39% (up 1%)
Lib Dem 10% (no change)
UKIP 15% (up 1%)
This is a statistically unchanged poll with Labour’s lead in single figures and UKIP maintaining a reasonable lead over the Lib Dems. However, despite all the noise around UKIP’s progress they would most likely fail to gain a single MP on these numbers. Farage’s insistence that he should take part in any future pre-election TV leaders’ debates is good for publicity but has no real foundation. The Greens with their single elected MP have a far greater claim!
Changes shown are compared to the last YouGov poll I reported on 13 May.
