Further notes on that YouGov poll

A few more notes on that YouGov poll from today's Sunday Times...

1. Fraser Nelson at the Spectator points out that if translated to an election result, the poll would give Labour 321 seats and the Tories 260, leaving Labour just five short of a majority.

2. A lesser reported tidbit from the poll is that for the first time in an age, Labour are more trusted on the economy than the Tories. This is absolutely key because as we all know, it's the economy, stupid.

3. It appears that the earliest editions of the Sunday Times had different poll results, ones that gave the Tories a 6% lead, yet in later editions that got changed to 2%. This requires an explanation.
