And LAB drops to 15 month low as UKIP surges
The figures from the latest News International daily poll by YouGov are above and show the continued damage that the dramatic rise of Ukip is having particularly on the Tories.
Since YouGov started polling after the 2001 General Election the blues have never been on this level. The LAB 38% is the lowest for them since February 20th 2012. Only the LDs in this survey seem relatively unaffected.
In terms of its impact on GE2015 a 17% Ukip share still falls some way short of what’s required to win a seat. The critical measure is the LAB-CON gap and there’s little doubt that the main beneficiary of the Ukip rise is Mr. Miliband.
We’ve got another round of local by-elections tonight with possible prospects for Ukip.
