Tory lead cut to four in latest poll

New YouGov poll suggests the Conservatives' lead over Labour remains fragile.

The Conservatives' lead over Labour remains fragile, according to a new poll which shows a hung parliament remains possible after the next election.

The latest daily YouGov survey for the Sun put the Tories down one point to 36 per cent, with Labour unchanged on 32 per cent and the Liberal Democrats up one to 20 per cent. If repeated at a general election on a uniform swing, the latest figures would leave Labour 31 seats short of a majority in a hung parliament.

But there was better news for the Tories in the latest Angus Reid survey for the website Political Betting, which shows the party on track to win a comfortable majority at the election. The poll had the Tories unchanged on 39 per cent, with Labour also unchanged on 26 per cent and the Liberal Democrats up three to 21 per cent.

Lib Dem strategists will be encouraged that the party appears to still be enjoying a poll bounce from its spring conference last weekend and increased media attention on leader Nick Clegg.

If repeated at a general election, the Angus Reid figures would see David Cameron enter No 10 with an overall majority of 34.
