…but target voters prefer Cameron.
That’s a footnote finding in yesterday’s YouGov poll for the London Evening Standard. Make of it what you will but I found this on Anthony Wells’ indispensable UK Polling Report:
"YouGov asked people if they would prefer David Cameron as Conservative leader to Margaret Thatcher as she was in the 1980s. Overall David Cameron came out on top, the first choice of 34% compared to 24% for the 1980s version of Thatcher. Amonst London Labour and Lib Dem voters the preference was strongly for Cameron, amongst London Tories ther ewas still a yearning for the Mrs T of old – 1980s Mrs Thatcher was the choice of 46% compared to 42% for Cameron."
