There is a new YouGov poll in today’s Sunday Times newspaper showing the Conservatives just 1% behind Labour:
Conservative 35% (no change)
Labour 36% (down 2%)
Lib Dem 8% (no change)
UKIP 13% (up 2%).
Labour is failing to regain the leads it enjoyed about a year ago when it was regularly 5-8% ahead of the Conservatives. UKIP’s rating is up in this poll but it has generally been sliding since the Euro election results.
The poll above is compared with the YouGov poll published on 24 July.
