No, not all in the same poll, but a few new polls from the last couple of days. An ICM poll for BBC Wales has found support for a “rainbow coalition” to govern Wales. 41% of respondents backed a coalition between Plaid Cymru, the Conservatives and Lib Dems, compared to 28% favouring a Labour/Plaid deal and 21% supporting a Labour/Lib Dem coalition.Rhodri Morgan remained the most popular choice for First Minister. In a straight choice between Ieuan Wyn Jones and Rhodri Morgan, 48% preferred Morgan to 34% for Jones. Finally, 47% said they would be in favour of giving the Welsh Assembly full law making and tax raising powers, 44% would be against.

Next up, we are yet to see the first voting intention poll since the controversy over Gordon Brown’s offer of cabinet seats to the Liberal Democrats, but Populus’s weekly poll for the Daily politics contained one question about it – 34% of people said they would be more likely to support Gordon Brown if he included Liberal Democrats in his government, 55% said they would not.

Finally Slugger O’Toole has details of a new poll in Northern Ireland showing 54% of people favoured Northern Ireland remaining part of the UK (including 22% of Catholics), with 30% supporting a united Ireland.
