YouGov deflates the Lib Dem rise

Text settings

Given the wave-making nature of the ComRes poll earlier, it's worth pointing out the YouGov poll for tomorrow's Sunday Times.  Rather than a eye-catching increase in Lib Dem support, it records a 2 point fall for Clegg, Cable et al.  Here are the headline numbers:

Conservatives --- 44 percent (up 1 percentage point)

Labour --- 32 percent (no change)

Lib Dem --- 14 percent (down 2)

Over at Political Betting, Mike Smithson indicates that the difference may be down to polling methods, online vs telephone.  I guess we'll have to wait for more polls to know either way.
