YouGov joins the double digit lead club
In the last couple of weeks four polls were produced and the only one that did not have the Conservatives in a double digit lead was YouGov. The have now reported again and they join the double digit club giving the Conservatves an 11% lead on the headline voting intention. The relief for Labour is the breakdown unusually produces something very close to a uniform swing with all areas seeing changes of between 1.5% to 3% in the Conservatives favour. As a result there is not a huge loss of seats in any one area which helped keep the Conservative projected majority down form the 90’s we saw in last weeks other polls to 54 in this one.
The SNP are still reporting at 50% in Scotland and the Conservatives as in all last weeks polls are well ahead of Labour in second place there. The changes see the Conservatives average lead increase to 8.4% and the projected majority rise slightly to 66. All the updated figures can be found here. The breakdown of this poll is below.
