Boris 43/Ken 38/Paddick 7/Benita 4/UKIP 4/Jones 3
After the second prefs have been allocated YouGov has Boris beating Ken by 53 to 47%.
A big question is whether YouGov will continue its stunning success with this particular election. In both 2004 and 2008 its final poll got the outcome correct to within 1%.
The poll contrast sharply with the one phone poll of the campaign by Populus which had a Boris 1st preference lead of 12%. The internet firm polled the last so should be closer if opinion is moving.
In the voting for the assembly the poll suggests Labour will get 11 (+3), CON 8 (-3), LDs 2(-1), UKIP 2 (+2) GREEN 2 (nc)
There are a mass of elections today but it is only the mayoral race which had seen a lot of betting.
This post will be updated as soon as we get the numbers.
YouGov poll based on those “certain to vote”. Amongst all those expressing a choice the split was 50-50 with Boris ahead by a whisker.
