Poll: UK Conservatives ahead of Labour

The Times: Tories seize lead in polls

DAVID CAMERON’S debut as Tory leader has given the Conservatives a surge of support that has put them ahead of Labour for the first time in 18 months, a Sunday Times poll shows.

The YouGov poll of more than 2,000 people, carried out since Cameron was declared leader of the party on Tuesday, reveals that the Tories have turned a two-point deficit to a one-point lead.

Cameron’s victory has pushed the Tories up to 37% of the vote, two points up on last month, while Labour is down one to 36%. The Liberal Democrats have also been squeezed, down two to 18%.
In another poll, by ICM for The Sunday Telegraph, the Tories have moved into a two-point lead. They are on 37%, with Labour on 35% and the Lib Dems on 21%. ICM polled just over 1,000 people.
