Telegraph YouGov poll gives Tories an 18 point lead.

Is anyone surprised by this poll? What it does show is that there are some real die hard, brain dead Labour supporters out there. What does Brown have to do to stop people voting for him? bite the head off of a puppy?

Unfortunately I "know of" certain people who would vote Labour habitually and as a matter of course. Mainly because they . . . 'always have' . . it's pathetic!

TP is right. It's the "pig in a red rosette" syndrome.

They didn't ask me and I'm on the Yougov panel...bastards! That would have made it a 46% lead....lol

To not vote Labour for some people would be very distressing as there are pockets of the country where there is absolute unwavering Labour support. Call it naivete or a groove in the record but its just a learned response that cant be de conditioned. They would still vote for Kevin Barron, despite his jolly to New Zealand because they drown their memory cells with alcohol and statins and cant remember what the MP has actually done for them in their constituency.

South Yorkshire is a prime example

The only seat that has changed party hands in the last 64 years is Sheffield Hallam Nick Clegg, from Tory to LibDem

Henry's right about S. Yorks. For my sins, I spent about 18 months working in Barnsley. A nodding dog with a red collar could have got in there. On thinking about it, he did. They had Roy Mason...now Lord Mason. Enough said on that particular subject methinks.

Looks like the judges have come to a firm decision then.

No, just tell the truth....

The Scots and the Welsh might change when gene replacement therapy improves. If only the St George gene could be transplanted. I strongly advocate eugenics meanwhile.

I grew up in Kevin Barrons Constituency I know it for 39 years

South Yorkshire is Labour and I think it would have to be something special for them to vote anything else

Cato,

I'm from Barnsley, if I can change, maybe there is some hope.

Those who seek real change will be depressed not by the support for the present government but by the 90% support for the political status quo.

This poll is not much different from all the other results this month, allowing for margin for error.

Labour got to 34 immediately after the G20, but all the others for quite a while put them on about 30.

There is now a trend to put them below 30. Looked at in this way I do not see a sudden deterioration due to the budget rather is confirms a steady trend down for labour.

I think this is worse news for Labour since it shows a lack of volatility. Volatility can work both ways and its what Labour would need to rely on if they are to recover. As it is the indication is people have made their minds up.
