ComRes sub-sample : Labour slump to third

The Scottish sub-sample of the latest UK-wide ComRes poll shows the Conservatives up a few points, and the SNP down a few points while still retaining the lead. But the startling finding is that Labour has slumped to a dismal third place, and unlike the recent YouGov poll it's by some distance. Here are the full figures -

SNP 30% (-4)
Conservatives 26% (+6)
Labour 19% (-8)
Liberal Democrats 14% (+4)
Others 10% (+2)

Of course the likelihood is that Labour's third place can be explained away by the huge margin of error...but you do just wonder. That's how extraordinary these times are.
