Conservatives - 20 point lead in Sunday Times YouGov Poll

From the Sunday Times:

The latest YouGov poll for the Sunday Times makes depressing reading for Gordon Brown ahead of the coming week’s key by-election test in Crewe & Nantwich. The Tories have a 20-point national poll lead, up from 16 a month ago. Labour is on just 25% of the vote (down 2), with the Tories at 45% (up 2) and the Liberal Democrats on 18%, also up 2. David Cameron is beginning to move towards the kind of poll leads that Tony Blair enjoyed before his landslide victory in 1997.

What I'm pleased to see from this Poll is that Gordon Brown's tax bribe failed to come off - 47% say it was a cynical ploy ahead of the by-election. 69% of voters say Brown is not up to the job and 59% say he should step down before the next election. Any of the cheering Labour MPs at Darling's tax announcement last week will not be too happy today.

The people have seen through them.
