Daily polling roundup 1st April

Today we got the YouGov/Sun daily which again showed a close race, with the Tories a couple of points ahead on this occasion. This was today’s only national poll – it’s hard to imagine that until the last few years this would have been a busier-than-average polling day!

We also got our now-weekly batch of marginals polling from Lord Ashcroft. This week he looked at the Lib Dem battleground, including Nick Clegg’s battle to save his Sheffield Hallam seat. Please see my writeup for more.

Also at seat level, YouGov launched their Election Centre, an excellent new innovation that includes a nowcast and forecast using individual-level microdata from a 2-stage question (Ashcroft-style) to arrive at seat projections.

And finally, the best April fools day tweet award goes to:

Tomorrow is the ITV Debate, with as many as FIVE instant reaction polls being published afterwards, plus the normal YouGov/Sun at 10:30.
