The forward march of Labour renewed

Tonight's ICM poll:

Con 40% (no change)
Lab 31% (+2)
LD 18% (-1)

Best ICM score for Labour since March.

Yesterday's YouGov poll:

Con 40% (no change)
Lab 31% (+4)
LD 16% (-2)

Equal best YouGov score for Labour since April.

Being a partisan blogger whose aim in life is to cheer up Labour supporters, I'm using my editorial prerogative to ignore Sunday's ComRes poll.

Good choice re the ComRes poll!

If one factors in the couple of percent extra a sitting government often picks up from the main opposition party during the short campaign, this would put us back as the largest party (according to the Electoral Calculus model)...

Very much approve of the Hobsbawm reference.

I think these figures are probably accurate

Hi Luke,

The same ComRes poll has just put the Tories back ahead with a 17 point lead.

After seeing Browns performance yesterday on the BBC I'm surprised it's that low - I don't trust that poll.

Judging by Brown and his governments performance over the last few weeks, anyone who doesn't think the Tories are at least 20 points ahead is on drugs.
