This afternoon the ConservativeHome website used this graphic to illustrate their story about today’s YouGov poll which shows Boris Johnson 5 points ahead in the Mayoral race. Ross Lydall at the Standard has a couple of interesting pieces on this poll and the Mayor’s own polling. It appears that the Mayor refused to reveal his own MORI polling numbers at his press conference this morning but published them pretty sharply after the You Gov numbers came out. Sounds like he was rushed into changing his mind by the bad news.
Boris’ crime launch on 13th February was extremly sure-footed, see previous posting. If he can keep this up these polls are going to keep moving towards him. Go Boris!
