The Observer’s Toby Helm has reported that UKIP are on 17% nationally in tomorrow’s Observer poll – just 10% behind the Tories.
This is an astonishing figure that shows how the party is seriously now catching up with the Tories in national polls.
By comparison, the Liberal Democrats are down on just 8% – less than half that of UKIP.
Once it was major news when UKIP overtook the LibDems in a national opinion poll. I wonder how long it will be before UKIP polls second in a General Election voting intention poll ahead of the Tories.
