YouGov’s latest poll shows biggest Tory lead since early January

Text settings

The sense that things are moving the Tories way will be further bolstered by YouGov for the Sunday Times which has the Tories ahead by ten points, 39 to 29. As Conservative Home points out, this is the first time this year that Labour have been below 30 with YouGov. It is also the biggest Tory lead with YouGov since their poll of the 7th of January. On a uniform national swing, this result would leave the Tories five short of an overall majority. But given the Tory advantage in the marginals this result would most likely produce a quite comfortable Tory majority.
