Conservatives take the lead once again

In recent months I have refrained from commenting on opinion poll results but this latest one in the Times is interesting as it appears that the so-called "Brown bounce" has ended.

Early days yet - it may be a rogue poll - or it maybe the start of a trend. But as ConservativeHome reports: "Mr Brown and Mr Cameron are tied on 37 per cent over who is the right leader now to deal with the recession, though the Prime Minister had a 52 to 32 per cent edge only two months ago. Mr Cameron is now ahead by 43 to 31 per cent in leading Britain forward after the next election."

The more voters think of the future, the bigger the Tory majority is likely to be.
