Both of these were in report produced by Professor Curtice for the Electoral Reform Society
The big thing with the Tories is the LD battleground. The weaker the yellows are then the more seats on a national swing basis that the blues should pick up. This is a bit at odds with the Ashcroft marginals polling which has been showing that the LDs have been doing a fair bit better in the constituencies they hold compared with the country as a whole. The last two waves have had the LD to CON swing at 2%.
A 4% LAB lead for an overall majority seems low given what has happened in Scotland. A 7% or 10% lead for the Tories appears to be a massive challenge.
