Yougov shows the Lib Dems ahead by 3%

A Yougov poll out today show the Liberal Democrats on 34%, Conservatives on 31% and Labour on 26%.  Yougov also found:

“Just under half the country (49%) would vote for the Liberal Democrats if they were seen to have a reasonable chance of winning. Only 25% would vote for the Conservative party in these circumstances; a comparatively meagre 19% would vote for Labour.”

We’re not far off that situation to be honest! We’ll be there if we can get to 36-38% in the polls.

Despite days of scrutiny the political opponents are unable to find severe weaknesses in our policies. Just today in the Times several Generals  have said that Trident should be examined.

They “express ‘deep concern’  that the future of Trident has been excluded from the Strategic Defence Review that will follow the election. They caution that suppressing discussion of the issue or dismissing alternatives would be ‘a major strategic blunder’ “.

The key here is “alternatives” as the Liberal Democrats are not saying have no nuclear deterrent, we’re saying are there cheaper forms of nuclear deterrents?

  1. Hi Philip, good luck with your campaign. Yes I believe we could well be on a ‘tipping’ point, it certainly appears that way on the door steps.
