The latest poll by YouGov, released today (full PDF here) is encouraging for Boris Johnson. The Mayor leads Labour candidate Ken Livingstone by 48% to 41%. 

This is compared to Ken leading Boris 45% to 42% in February of this year, and a tight lead for Boris (46%-44%) in October last year. 

Interestingly, Boris leads Ken 30% to 29% amongst 18-24 year-olds – rarely a Conservative-friendly group. 

Worrying for the Livingstone campaign, only 63% of London Labour voters would vote for Ken if a London election were held tomorrow.
