Yougov4telegraph_1YouGov’s poll for this morning’s Telegraph offers a similar headline result to that of ICM’s survey for Tuesday’s Guardian.  In contrast to ICM, however, YouGov does not find any strong movement between Labour and the LibDems.  It records a 7% Tory lead and helps produce a 6.4% Tory advantage in ConservativeHome’s poll of polls.

YouGov finds that by 43% to 36% voters prefer a Conservative government led by David Cameron to a Labour government led by Gordon Brown.

The most interesting component of the YouGov poll is a comparison between voting intentions at last May’s General Election and today.  A Telegraph leader is underwhelmed by the overall Labour to Tory swing of 4% but that swing hides significant differences.  The swing to the Conservatives amongst women, for example, is 6% but only 2% amongst men.  It is 9% in London but just 2% in the North West and 3% in Yorks & Humber.  Jonathan Scott wrote about the Tories’ continuing ‘northern problem’ on yesterday’s Platform.
