YouGov Poll likely burst the LibDem Bubble.

The Lib Dems will be disappointed with today's YouGov poll carried out on behalf of the Sunday Times. It puts them on a meagre 14 points - way down on the 22 points shown in last night's poll from ComRes.

It does however confirm that Labour are on the slide. I think the rise observed in Labour's poll ratings over the last few months is over and we have seen the last gasp of this terrible government.

It's all down hill for Gordon Brown. If Labour want to save some seats they are going to have to call a snap election.

The only consistent figure during this year's dozen polls is the Conservative percentage, which has been entirely within the range 40 to 45% without exception — within the normal poll 'tolerance of +/-3%.

The graph automatically plotted here in Fireworkz shows the Labour and LibDem lines almost precisely mirroring each other, so there appear to be a number of Labour waverers who aren't sure whether to switch to the LibDems.

I suspect these are mostly in parts of the country where most would "never vote Tory on principle!" (as they would no doubt put it).

I agree, John. With over a year to go to the next general election, with the economy going down the tubes on a daily basis, things should only get better for the Tories.
