Just catching up on a couple of polls over the last few days.

Friday’s two Westminster voting intention polls from YouGov and Populus were YouGov/Sun – CON 33%, LAB 36%, LDEM 10%, UKIP 14% (tabs) and Populus – CON 34%, LAB 35%, LDEM 9%, UKIP 14% (tabs).

There was also a YouGov/Channel 4 Scottish poll in the week, showing very little change from the previous YouGov referendum poll in March. YES is on 37%(nc), NO is on 51%(-1) (tabs. Excluding don’t knows this works out at YES 42%, NO 58% – exactly the same as a month ago. This, incidentally, produced some superbly inept reporting from the Daily Mail, well deserving of my much sought after “Crap Media Reporting of Polls” award: Campaign against independence soars to 16 point lead. Apparently there has been a “surge” in support for the Union following “growing anger over Putin praise”. That’ll be a surge from 58% to 58% then.

There is also a new YouGov poll of European voting intentions, conducted for the Green party. Topline figures there are CON 22%, LAB 30%, LDEM 9%, UKIP 27%, GRN 8% (tabs)

Finally there was a Survation poll of London (tabs) which had toplines for the European election in London of CON 21%, LAB 39%, LDEM 13%, UKIP 20%, GRN 7% and for the London local elections of CON 26%, LAB 42%, LDEM 14%, UKIP 11%.

  1. As crossbar says Ed looked really nice this morning. I don’t think I’m the only woman who finds him attractive- in a tall, dark and handsome sort of way.

    Ps thinking of changing my alias to TVwoman.

  2. Val – you could tell us about the Sky tactics over the next 12 months.
    Some of us might not believe you are genuine but just some poster trying for a way to be taken seriously – smiley thing.


    WUFF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  4. I’m a Green through and through and enjoy browsing your pages for poll information. I regret that Green support is rarely shown here for GEs – come to think of it, I don’t remember much about local ones either (but don’t shoot me if I’m wrong).

    Can’t tell you the boost it gave me to see the Green support published today. Is it that the main pollsters don’t bother publishing Green voting intentions – given that in some areas it must be outstripping LibDem?…. or is it that YOU don’t see the need/point?

    Pollsters themselves are clearly instrumental helping to influence support. If it is in any way within your power, could you continue to publish it?


  5. I remember someone posting a link to a website where they have a calculator for working out how many seats each party will get in the Euro Elections based on poll figures like the swingometer on this site and others. Does anyone have a link? I had a look but couldn’t find which thread it was on.

  6. I think the young are underrepresented in other polls, especially at the weekend.
