The first Mayoral phone poll give Boris a 12 percent lead

April 30th, 2012

So far in the London mayoral race all the polling has come from online firms. Tonight sees the first telephone poll by Populus for the Times. The first preference lead of 12% is in the same region as the 11.2% that Survation had in the Telegraph on Friday.

The big mystery is which pollster is getting this right. YouGov this morning had just a 3% lead for Boris.

There’s a furious fight going on for third place with Paddick and Benita on 5% one behind Jones on 6.

We should know on Friday which is right.
