Con 42% (+4)
Lab 29% (-)
LD 19% (-)

Surprisingly, fully 43% of Lib Dem voters disagree with this statement and fewer than half - 48% - agree. 52% of 2005 Lib Dem voters disagree too, as do 51% of Lib Dem identifiers. That will cause a shudder or two at Cowley Street.
UPDATE: Richard Willis has details of a new Yougov poll, which shows the Tory lead unchanged at 9%.
