A Populus poll for tomorrow’s Times has Labour on 37, the Tories on 36 and the Lib Dems on 16. The Lib Dems are the big gainers, up four, while the two main parties have both lost votes. The Lib Dems are clearly benefitting form the extra attention they are getting thanks to their leadership election. While the poll, as Anthony Wells points out, doesn’t actually mark a change in the lead when it comes to Populus polls it is still a nice psychological boost for Gordon Brown ahead of the Queen’s speech.
