YouGov has some bad news for the ConDems

Support for the Lib Dems has slumped to a 20 year low of just 7% according to YouGov.

In the same daily poll, approval of the British government is down to just 33% with 53% disapproving.  Unsurprisingly, 85% of Conservative voters approve of the ConDem government but only 40% of Lib Dems approve and 33% disapprove.  An unbelievable 66% of people who voted Lib Dem at the last election disapprove of the ConDems.

Sadly, only the LibLabCon are included in this daily polling so we can't see the UKIP effect but just before Christmas, YouGov showed that UKIP were rapidly catching up with the Lib Dems so some of that former Lib Dem support - the people who voted Lib Dem because they didn't want to vote Labour or the Tories but didn't want to cast a "wasted" vote - is bound to come to UKIP.
