YouGov sub-sample : SNP and Tories tied for lead

The latest YouGov poll is not only disastrous for Labour on a UK-wide basis, it also shows the party slumping to a very rare third place in Scotland. Admittedly that is a somewhat nominal finding, as the top three parties are in a virtual three-way tie for the lead. One thing is for sure, though - Glenrothes now seems like a very distant memory!

SNP 29% (+1)
Conservatives 29% (+11)
Labour 28% (-7)
Liberal Democrats 10% (-4)
Others 3% (-2)

As ever, the detailed findings of sub-samples should be taken with a pinch of salt, with the Tory standing looking especially questionable (at least until another two or three sub-samples show a similar position).
