The Conservative party has seen its lead cut to just two points in 60 key marginal seats, in an exclusive Channel 4 News/YouGov poll released today which shows we could be heading for a hung parliament.
The poll shows the gap between the two main parties has narrowed to its closest since shortly after Gordon Brown became prime minster in the autumn of 2007. 39 per cent of voters said they would vote Conservative and 37 per cent said they would vote Labour.
In February last year, when we last did a poll in these marginal seats, the Tories had a seven point lead. Now it is just two points, a swing of 2.5 per cent to Labour.
The Liberal Democrats’ rating went up by two points to 15 per cent.
Vince Cable is, far and away, the people’s favourite for Chancellor. 27% think he would make the best chancellor, against 17 for Darling and 15 for Osborne.Tweet
