Sunday polls

A quick round up of Sunday polls today. The regular YouGov/Sunday Times poll is up here, with toplines of CON 34%, LAB 36%, LDEM 8%, UKIP 13%. A two point Labour lead, in line with the daily YouGov polls this week so far.

There was also an Opinium poll in the Observer. They showed toplines of CON 29%(-2), LAB 35(nc), LDEM 7%(nc), UKIP 18%(+1). Changes there are since a fortnight ago, so pre-Juncker. No sign of Opinium showing similar movements to those in YouGov’s polls this week.

Finally there is a new-ish TNS BMRB Scottish poll. As usual there is quite a gap between TNS’s fieldwork and publication, so this poll was actually conducted in mid-June and is older than the recent YouGov Scottish poll. Topline figures are YES 32%(+2), NO 46%(+4), changes are from the last TNS poll in May. On the face of it it’s a widening of the NO campaign’s lead, but both sides have gained at the expense of don’t know and excluding don’t knows the YES figure is 41%, very much in line with TNS’s previous polls this year.

    Thank you. Puzzling over this has been keeping me awake at night.

    @SHEVII

    I only buy quality peanut butter. It all seems to have switched to plastic containers, though.

  2. Peanut butter, cream cheese and celery on brown.

    Best. Sandwich. Ever.

    Aspartame.

    I appreciate that’s not down to the packaging though.

  4. I should post on the Ashcroft poll shortly, but need to have my tea. In the meantime, the important issues (1) Hartley’s do already sell jam in squeezy tubs, (2) I think we did ask favourite sandwich once and it was something achingly dull like cheese and pickle

  5. That sandwich question, far from being dull, has permanently damaged my faith in the judgement of the British people.

  6. Using the near-empty jamjar as a flytrap is an interesting idea but insects usually get the better of me. I bought some mothballs but they weren’t much use. You have to take such careful aim and I usually miss.

    “Why has nobody designed jam that comes in tubes like toothpaste?”

    Any jam receptacle has to be broad enough church to allow for the presence and dispensing of whole strawberries as well as liquified jelly.
    The same goes for political parties and their leadership – a point on which I disagree with Oborne’s otherwise excellent article on Milliband.

  8. It’s amazing after all this time to hear Elm House being openly discussed on the BBC. It’s been kicked down the line passed the next election but let’s just hope that some time not too far in the future the cells will be full of the long, long guilty.

    I don’t think it will have much effect on voting except to see a further plunge in respect levels for the whole political class (and most of the press, media, legal, police and civil servants too, probably)

    Oborne doesn’t seem to get that this inability to dispense whole strawberries is yet another reason not to vote Labour…

  10. Peanut butter, slices of apple, Branston pickle and golden syrup, then toast the sarnie in a Breville. That was my snack of choice as a 14 year old when I was 8 stone soaking wet.

    Well if it keeps cropping up, then we should maybe have some polling on it. Maybe need to add some more esoteric versions though. I got my partner a “Tour de France” ham-and-cheese croissant at the weekend which she seemed to enjoy…

    If you can scrape all the peanutty stuff off then plastic is not too bad a taste.
