But is it blip or start of a trend?
After a dark November of polls for the Tories YouGov today gives them their best figures of the month.
Like all such moves we have to be careful before jumping to conclusions. It might just be a blip or it could be a first indicator that the better economic news is beginning to resonate. Dave Cameron and his team will surely be hoping for the latter.
Interestingly the proportion of 2010 LDs in this survey now saying LAB is, at 21â€° the lowest for a long time.
The movement today is well within the margin of error and we’ll have to see what other polls and pollsters find in the coming days.
Whatever it will give a bit of a boost to blue spirits after a disheartening period.
Today it’s PMQs for the first time in two weeks.
