New YouGov Poll – Labour’s Lead Down to 7% as UKIP Slides

There is a new YouGov poll in today’s Sun newspaper showing the Labour lead dropping further to 7%:

                   Conservative               31% (up 1%)

                   Labour                          38% (no change)

                                                     Lib Dem                        10% (up 1%)

                                                     UKIP                             12% (down 4%)

Despite recent U-turns by Labour on spending and schools, and perhaps because of their decision to target pensioners for cuts, they have failed to make any progress in the polls. Labour’s lead has consistently been in single figures but what is now evident is that UKIP is sliding back after all their exposure following their gains in the local elections.

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