As Christmas draws near the Conservatives have finally got to be where they need to be in the polls to win a good overall majority. The YouGov poll in tomorrow's Sunday Times shows the Conservatives on 45% (up four from last month) for the first time. This is a 13% lead over Labour who are down 3 on 32%. The LibDems are up one point to 14%.
Gordon Brown's own approval rating has also slumped to minus 26%, down from minus 10%last month. That compares with the 48% positive approval rating he enjoyed at the height of his post-leadership "bounce" in August. David Cameron has a positive rating of 20%.
At least I will have something to talk about on News 24 later!
