Labour cut Tory lead to three points

Latest YouGov poll would leave Brown 19 seats short of a majority.

Labour could still emerge as the largest party after the election, according to a new opinion poll which puts the party just three points behind the Conservatives.

The latest daily YouGov survey for the Sun has the Tories unchanged on 37 per cent, with Labour up two points to 34 per cent. The Liberal Democrats are unchanged on 17 per cent. If repeated at a general election on a uniform swing, the latest would figures would produce a hung parliament with Gordon Brown 19 seats short of an overall majority.

But there is better news for the Tories in the latest PoliticalBetting/Angus Reid poll, which shows the party's lead over Labour increasing to 13 points. The survey put the Tories up one to 39 per cent, with Labour unchanged on 26 per cent and the Liberal Democrats down one to 18 per cent. If repeated at a general election, the figures would see David Cameron enter No 10 with a comfortable majority of 50 seats.
