Boris would beat Ken

Whilst on the YouGov website I came across this poll that I missed when it was published yesterday.

It shows that Boris Johnson is narrowly ahead of Ken Livingstone in the 2012 London mayoral race and is YouGov's first poll of London residents.

  • Boris is ahead on first preferences, by 46% to 44%.
  • On a forced choice between Boris and Ken, Boris beats Ken by 46% to 41%, with 14% saying don't know.
  • 58% think Johnson is doing well as Mayor which is a very high approval rating.
  • 40% of voters don't think that tube workers should go on strike.

We must all remember that in 2008, YouGov was the only company to correctly predict Johnson's election as London mayor with it's final poll correctly projected at 53% to 47%.

Working Class Tory has an excellent breakdown of this- read here
