SNP on 32% in ComRes subsample

The Scottish subsample from the latest GB-wide ComRes poll gives Labour an eight-point lead over the SNP, with both parties well ahead of the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats. Here are the full figures -

Labour 40% (+13)
SNP 32% (-5)
Conservatives 14% (+1)
Liberal Democrats 13% (-4)
Others 1% (-6)

Although this is a reversal of the previous subsample that gave the SNP a rare lead, these numbers taken at face value would still be good news for the party. They relate to Westminster voting intention only, and of course the SNP tend to do better in Holyrood elections. The real problem, as ever, is that the sample size is simply too small to draw meaningful conclusions.
