Tories back ahead with YouGov

Text settings

Earlier in the camapign, a two point lead in the YouGov tracker poll caused panic in Tory ranks. But tonight, there’s a certain sense of relief that the Tories are back ahead by this margin with You Gov. The numbers are Tories up one to 33, Lib Dems down two to 31 and Labour up one to 27.

Now this is, of course, only one poll and others show the Lib Dems still surging. But there’ll be a certain relief at CCHQ that the haemoragging of Tory support seems to have stopped.
