Good news for Labour
Pleasing reading this morning, after attending a fired-up meeting of Hackney's Labour council candidates and organisers yesterday.
You Gov is the most dramatic - smallest Tory lead for 14 months:
CON 39% (nc)
LAB 33% (+1)
LD 17% (-1)
A 3% shift in 48 hours. At this rate of improvement we will overtake the Tories by Tuesday this week.
ComRes shows the same pattern:
CON 38% (-2)
LAB 30% (+1)
LD 20% (-1)
PoliticsHome tracker poll says the following according to them:
"Analysis of tracker data since the party conference season reveals that:
Cameron's lead over Brown in performance ratings has halved since September
The image of the Conservative party has also deteriorated in several key areas since September, while Labour's has improved
Cameron’s leadership performance ratings have fallen at a faster rate than the Conservative party image and the party’s lead in the polls
Voters are asked on a weekly basis to say whether they think that the party leaders are doing a good job or a bad job. The percentage thinking a leader is doing a bad job are then subtracted from the percentage thinking he is doing a good job to give a net performance rating. Since mid September, Cameron's performance rating has fallen from +36 to +12, while Brown's has risen from -55 to -33. The gap has thus halved from 91 to 45.
At the same time, the image of the Conservative party has deteriorated in key areas, while Labour's image has improved."
