The Tories close the gap by 1.4 percent in this week’s PB YouGov Weekly Average

March 16th, 2014

After a big week politically and some generally better ratings the Tories have closed the gap by 1.4% in the latest PB weekly average. We have been producing this weekly since the start of the year to help us better follow trends from the five times a weeky YouGov polls.

This is a big move upwards which would have been greater if today’s poll for the Sunday Times had not had LAB back up at 40 with the Tories at 33, LDs down to 8 and UKIP at 12%.

The big picture, once you have taken out the daily variations, is that the LAB share is continuing to hold up.
