There’s a new YouGov poll out which has LAB retaining its 2 points lead over CON. The survey also included the firm’s regular trackers on opinion in relation to Brexit.
In broad terms this has Brexit right at 43% (up 1) with Brexit wrong at 45% (same) so really not much change. The big picture is seen in the chart above – the nation remains broadly divided with the monthly average “right to leave” lead for only the second month moving into negative territory.
This polling, because it has been asked in the same form so often, is establishing itself as the leading polling indicator. There are simply many more data points.
The monthly changes are not huge but taking a month of polls rather than single ones gives us a better sense of the trend.
