Conservative lead on the slide

The Conservative party's lead has slipped from 19 per cent in October to 9 per cent.

Tim Montgomerie has just posted a rumour about the Conservative dwindling lead in the polls:

“According to a source inside The Guardian the Conservative lead in tomorrow’s ICM poll is down by 2% (since the recent Sunday Telegraph/ ICM poll) to 9%.

“This is in line with The Sunday Times’ YouGov poll which also showed a surprising narrowing of the Conservative advantage.”

This chart shows the Conservative lead in every ICM poll since August using data from UK polling report and includes the 9 per cent figure. It won’t make happy viewing for CCHQ.
