Tories extend their lead with ICM

ICM News of the World Mar 26 Mar 19
LABOUR 31% 32%
LIB DEMS 19% 19%
LAB to CON swing from 2005 5.5% 4.5%

Wiil this bring welcome relief to the blues?

The above figures are being reported by SkyNews and give the Tories an eighrt point lead which is probably enough to secure a small overall majority.

This follows a week dominated by the YouGov daily polls which had the gap down to just two points at one stage.

A week ago when the ICM six point leads came out I said “sell the the Tories and buy Labour”. Maybe we ought to considering doing the opposite.

ICM also found that found that 24% of the 1,000 people quizzed between March 24-25 were less likely to vote Labour after the budget, with just 9% saying they were more likely.

So good news at Cameron Towers and less good news for Brown Central.

I’m expecting other polls tonight.
