New YouGov Poll – Labour Lead Now Just 2%

There is a new YouGov poll in tomorrow’s Sun newspaper showing Labour’s lead falling to just 2%:

                   Conservative                35% (up 1%)

                   Labour                          37% (no change)

                                                     Lib Dem                         9% (down 1%)

                                                     UKIP                             12% (up 2%)

The Labour and Conservative shares are almost identical to that found by today’s ICM poll in the Guardian. The difference, of course is in the findings and relative positions of UKIP and the Lib Dems. We have now seen several polls with the Conservatives around 34-35% and Labour well under 40%.

I remind readers that most followers of UK political polling consider ICM and YouGov to be the best in the business. Although it is notable that YouGov has been more erratic than usual over the last month.

The poll above is compared with the YouGov poll I reported on 5 March.
