Above are the latest YouGov regional aggregates based on a week’s polling which have been prepared for PoliticsHome. To simplify the table I have just included the changes from what happened precisely five years ago today – general election day 2005.

The theory here is that by taking the aggregates from a whole week of polling we can get more meaningful sample sizes for each of them. The overall number was 11,586.

This really does show the battle-grounds for this elections and highlights where we might expect to see the most changes.

Later today we’ll get the final polls from all but one of the pollsters – the MORI one is for the Evening Standard tomorrow.
