That final point is probably the most indicative. Essentially, the closer the election comes the stronger opposition to a pre-election pact with UKIP becomes.
So having dropped in August, the proportion of party member respondents opposed to such a deal then rose during the last four months of last year.
However, the question asks nothing about local pacts, and this is a point that the monthly poll may return to. In the meantime, here are the figures for a deal with the Liberal Democrats.
Support is up a bit to 7 per cent. The previous high was five per cent in March. So under one in ten Party members wants a deal with the LibDems, compared to one in five for one with UKIP.
Over 850 party members replied to the survey. The responses are tested against a control panel which was supplied by YouGov.
