Tories in double poll shock
Today's Times Populus poll is a double-shocker for David Cameron. Not only has Labour narrowed the gap to three points, at 37-34, an extraordinarily poor showing for the Tories given the tales of economic woe that befall us on a daily basis (and Mori recently recorded 39-37). But for all the huffing and puffing about the European Treaty, only 37% of people think the Treaty is the same as the Constitution. Sure, people still say they want a referendum. But the poll suggests that Europe is not the issue the Tories (or some of Nick Clegg's excitable troops) think it is.
