Lib Dems in the lead

Text settings

A BPIX poll for the Mail on Sunday has the Lib Dems in the lead. The poll, which uses a similar methodology to YouGov, puts the Lib Dems up 12 on 32, the Tories down 7 to 31 and Labour down three to 28. Time will tell if this is a bubble that will burst but the first ever TV debate has certainly shaken the kaleidoscope of British politics.

Update: Do read Andrew Neil's blog on whether the Lib Dem surge will last
