Today YouGov released poll data that UKIP are on 14 per cent – something that wasn’t news to me as this is exactly the same as the calculations I made last week. However the figure looks decidedly dodgy.
A poll conduced at the end of February by Ipsos-MORI for The Economist shows that the economy continues to be the public’s most pressing concern. This is potentially a double-edged sword for Labour. The public still blame Labour, rather than the banks for the deficit. Moving beyond that will be easier said than done.
