Shouldn't they put Farage in that poll now?

One would think, but it'd mess up comparisons with past polls.

He'd definitely poll above Clegg, and would probably have an outside chance of making second...

But since UKIP haven't won any seats yet, let's not run away with ourselves, eh?

He'd probably tie with Clegg and he'd be nowhere near second. Barely anyone know who Nigel Farage is would only be a minor reason for that.

Worth noting that on a forced choice question, Labour's lead with YouGov would be cut to 4. The UKIP protest in opinion polls is something we've seen in the past and usually dissapates. I'm not worried given we still have 3 years left to go.

Presumably a bit of an outlier, but tonight's YouGov has Labour on 45%, 13 points ahead of the Tories.  Lib Dem retention is down to 29% (there's going to be a large margin of error on that, though).

Labour take an 8% lead with ICM (!!!!)!

Political Betting must be in uproar, given the gold standard's getting YouGov style leads.

Do you mean ComRes? Populus' last poll had a 9 point gap.

YG - their lowest Tory figure & highest UKIP figure.

Interesting that there's still 10% for Others with UKIP removed.

Diabolical numbers for the blues in there. This double-dip's done them no good, obviously. The gap on net approvals between Cam/Mili has narrowed from a 23% "lead" for Dave, to just 7%. Ed'll soon be the least hated. Peter Kellner saying that only comparable collapse was for Gordon Brown when he flunked the election that never was.

32% blame the Tory-Liberal cuts, compared to 17% who blame Brown Labour. Stick a fork in them, they're done.

The one thing I'd say that is on the Coalition's side is time. Much could happen for better Smiley  or worse Sad  between now and May 2015

Any Scotland/Wales poll which has such a disapparity between constituency and regional can surely be written off, right?

Depends if you believe Con & Lab voters wouldn't vote elsewhere in a substantive amount when given the opportunity?

It's more that people don't entirely understand what the regional ballot is for, so sometimes you see odd numbers.

This weekend's YouGov, not much of it was taken after the election results.

43 - 31 - 9 (UKIP on 8%)

David Cameron approval (his lowest yet)
31 (-1) / 62 (-1)

Ed Miliband approval
27 (nc) / 60 (-5)

Nick Clegg (his lowest too)
17 (-3) / 74 (+1)

Gets worrying for Dave if Ed Miliband starts looking like the least ugly sister, right?

Labour've also taken the lead on the "Which would you prefer to see after the next election?" question, last asked in January.
A Tory government led by David Cameron 36 (-5)
A Labour government led by Ed Miliband 42 (+8)

He's hasn't got a good raport with the public and there's still hate towards the last government. We're very much in "plague on all your houses" territory.

He has neither the policies nor the personality to enthuse his supporters, so only receives a lukewarm backing from them, with the unfortunate mantle of being hated by two sets of parties supporters for his attacks on them as pretty much the sole opposition.

Yougov (again) & TNS-BRMB have 13% Labour leads tonight. Also a government approval graph:
