The Day the Polls Didn’t Turn

This is a poll of polls average for today only:

Worth noting that the Labour figure is inflated by their very high rating with Panelbase.

As you can see below, TNS, Panelbase and Survation all put Labour ahead, but the latest polls out tonight from ComRes and YouGov have the Tories in first:

Which makes this Guardian splash, released before the ComRes and YouGov polls, look rather premature:

Too late to change the splash?

Ashcroft Tory Marginal Poll: One More Blue Seat Turns Red

According to Ashcroft’s latest projection, the following Tory MPs’ seats are on course to fall to Labour: Bob Blackman (Harrow East), Mike Weatherley (Hove), David Morris (Morecambe and Lunesdale), James Wharton (Stockton South).

Better news for Paul Maynard (Blackpool North and Cleveleys), Richard Graham (Gloucester), Chris Skidmore (Kingswood), Nicky Morgan (Loughborough) and Andrew Stephenson (Pendle), all set to hold on. Stuart Andrew in Pudsey is tied with Labour.

The only change from the last Ashcroft poll in these constituencies is Harrow East, whoch turns from blue to red. Ashcroft explains “The most notable movement across the board in this round of polling was a move towards the two main parties at the expense of UKIP”…

Post-Paxo Poll of Polls

As of this morning there have been 5 polls since Paxo interviewed the two leaders. Averaging them all out it appears there has been no ‘Miliband bounce’ post-Paxo as Labour have hoping, the two main parties are still neck and neck. Both the Tories and Labour are squeezing up towards that 35% mark, while UKIP are feeling it down on an average 12%.[…]

Voters Don’t Trust ‘Em, Say Sod ‘Em

sod-the-lot-vote-ukip

If you want an illustration of just how low trust in politicians is nowadays, Anthony Wells’ UK Polling Report has a classic example from last week:

I mentioned some YouGov polling about which taxes would rise under a Labour or Conservative government, conducted before Prime Minister’s Question time, Cameron ruling out a VAT rise and Ed Balls ruling out an NI rise.

How Would Party Leaders Spend Friday Night?

Lord Ashcroft’s focus group is back, this time asked how they think each party leader would spend a free Friday night:

Cameron: “get a helicopter to Cornwall” with Sam and the kids, or go “to his club” to engage in “mildly inappropriate banter with Conservative MPs and eight bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon”

Farage: go to the pub, possibly after a spot of fishing, or “to a French restaurant with his German wife to complain about immigration”

Clegg: would take his wife and children ten-pin bowling, or stay in with them to watch Great British Bake Off

Miliband: if he did not have a “posh dinner party” planned, would be playing with the train set some suspect he has in his loft, or spend the time “reading the opinion polls for something to grab onto”

But how many lofts does Ed have?[…]

Ashcroft Focus Group Tell Leaders to Go Back to School

The Ashcroft focus group is back and this time his Lordship has asked which job would each party leader be best suited to outside of politics:

Cameron: “a headmaster, or a company director in charge of things”

Farage: “a pub landlord, and a good one at that, or would run his own small but successful business”

Clegg: “probably something administrative or perhaps a supermarket store manager”

Miliband: “university professor”

Former Harvard lecturer Miliband shouldn’t have quit the day job…[…]
