Ukip drop to 13%
The latest YouGov daily poll is out and sees the Tories still in the doldrums below the 30 mark. The comparisons in the chart above are with a week ago which was before the reported “swivel eyed loons” that a senior CON figure was said to have made about party activists.
The firm has tended to show show better than average figures for the Tories and today’s numbers suggest that the bad press they’ve been having is continuing to have an impact.
The Ukip figure, from a pollster that has been recording lower shares, is down at 13%. My view is that YouGov’s lack of a turnout weighting is the main factor why it can appear to be out of line.
