UKIP soar 4 points in this week’s Ashcroft national poll

August 4th, 2014

Populus Green total half that of Ashcroft

After a period in which UKIP has been edging down across the polls there’ll be some relief at Farage Towers that today’s Lord Ashcroft poll has them at 18% – up 4 on a week ago.

The chart shows the comparisons with the Populus online poll published earlier.

The bigger picture is that another month has gone by and LAB is maintaining a lead albeit a small one. Twice since the Ashcroft poll was started in May it has shown Tory leads.

As can be seen from the Electoral Calculus projection LAB’s 33% would give EdM a 34 seat majority. UKIP’s 18% = ZERO seats.
