But Opinium has Labour still in the 20s

April 5th, 2010
Opinium (Daily Express) Apr 5 Mar 29
CONSERVATIVES 39% 38%
LABOUR 29% 28%
LIB DEMS 17% 16%
LAB to CON swing from 2005 6.5% 6.5%

And the Tories move up one to 39

A second poll is just out, from new kid on the block Opinium, and this has the gap between the blues and the reds still at ten points although both move up one. I don’t have the Lib Dem figure yet.

The firm is a new pollster that operates with an online polling panel and has yet to build up a reputation. My guess is that punters will take the earlier ICM survey more seriously than this one.

Also due out tonight is YouGov and possibly one other.
