YouGov boost for Clegg on the war’s legality?

The Iraq War – Legal or illegal? ALL CON LAB LD
Legal 24 21 39 12
Illegal 47 52 35 64
Don’t know 29 27 25 24

According to the data from the Sunday Times YouGov poll, just published the above was the response to a question on the legality of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. As can be seen there’s a sharp divide between party supporters.

The precise question was: “On Wednesday the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg described the war in Iraq as “illegal”. Leaving aside whether you personally supported or opposed the war in Iraq, from what you know, do you think it was LEGAL or ILLEGAL?”

The VI figures were: CON 41: LAB 35: LD 14.

In the next 24 hours I’m hoping for both ICM and MORI polls.
