A bit of a non-story in the Times. The poll finds the Tories down two points to 34 percent and UKIP appear on the radar on two percent. Labour remain stable at 33 percent.
“David Cameron faces fresh unease from the Conservative Right after a new poll showing a fall in the party’s rating to its lowest level since April,” Reads the first paragraph.
However… Although the paper doesn’t publish the margin of error, it’s probably somewhere between 1 and 2 percentage points. Meaning that there is probably no statistical proof of any real change at all.
Although it’s nice to see the Tories down a bit, it’s one of those polls, where poor journos have to scramble around to make something of a poll that the paper spent a lot of money on, but which showed nothing new at all.
