YouGov gives Clegg best net ratings since March 2012

Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime MinisterThere is a further interesting snippet of evidence about how Nick Clegg’s appearance on LBC went down, to go with the online poll I mentioned during the week.

This time it is another online poll, but a ‘proper’ one with weighting, full protection against multiple voting and the like, and it comes in the form of YouGov’s latest poll for the Sunday Times. Each week this poll asks the public how they rate the party leaders, and today sees the best net rating for Nick Clegg since March last year and in fact at least 8 points better than all the other of those polls in the interim.

It’s only one poll and many things can move the public’s views of someone, but even so – it’s a large shift in Clegg’s ratings and the LBC interview was the big news about him last week.
