The LDs rise at the Tories’ expense with YouGov

Message from Robert:

I attempted to upgrade the main politicalbetting webserver (codenamed Ming) last night. Alas, this was not a success, and it refuses to come back up. The problem seems to be related to the onboard clock. We are therefore currently running solely off of webserver number two (aka Gideon). This may result in some slow performance tomorrow morning. Rest assured, I will get it up and running as soon as possible. If you find the main site slow, feel free to use Thanks, Robert

YG daily poll: The Sun Apr 7 Apr 6
LABOUR 32% 32%
LIB DEMS 19% 17%
LAB to CON swing from 2005 4% 5.5%

So two polls tonight showing boosts for the Lib Dems – which is probably the product of the broadcasting equal air-time rules that came into effect as soon as the election was declared. The third party which can have a big challenge getting its voice heard is now seeing certain coverage and that, I believe is being reflected in tonight’s numbers.

There’ll be disappointment amongst the Tories that what had seemed to be a sure-footed start to the campaign has not been reflected in any of the post announcement polls.

Labour will be delighted to remain on 32% with YouGov.

Tomorrow, as they say, is another day.

Mike Smithson
