New YouGov Poll – Labour’s Now Just 6% Ahead

There is a new YouGov poll in today’s Sun newspaper showing the Labour lead dropping again to 6%:

                   Conservative               33% (up 2%)

                   Labour                          39% (up 1%)

                                                     Lib Dem                        10% (no change)

                                                     UKIP                             13% (up 1%)

Labour’s lead has hovered around 8% recently +/-2% but this poll shows it at a recent low. What is interesting is that this is the first poll since the spending review and it shows the Conservative up to a level only just below that attained at the 2010 General Election. The Lib Dems are now consistently at about 10%, up from recent lows of 7-8%, and UKIP are down a few points from their post local election high. As the improved economic news begins to filter through I expect the gap between the Conservatives and Labour to narrow further.

Changes shown are compared to the last YouGov poll I reported on 19 June.
