Labour up one Tories down one in the daily poll

Labour up one Tories down one in the daily poll

YG daily poll: The Sun Apr 6 Apr 5
LABOUR 32% 31%
LIB DEMS 17% 18%
LAB to CON swing from 2005 5.5% 6.5%

So just MOE changes on the first day of the campaign

The YouGov daily poll of the campaign, for tomorrow’s Sun is now it and has only margin of error changes on last night. But Labour will be pleased to to have close the gap if only by a bit and the Tories pleased to still be in the 40s.

Fieldwork started at 5pm last night and finished at the same time today – so the bulk of the responses probably came in before Mr. Brown’s visit to the palace.

Tomorrow we should see a couple of new polls as well as the latest from YouGov.

One I’m particularly looking forward to is Populus in the Times – their first full national voting intention poll for more than two months. The firm operates in a very similar manner to ICM and it will be illuminating to compare with the 4% lead survey that we saw in the Guardian.
