Polling ratings: UKIP on 5%

The YouGov poll for last Sunday's Sunday Times makes interesting reading.

Between elections UKIP traditionally hovers around the small, negligable to irrelevant mark. It spikes at election time particularly at EU election time.

However there has never been a time where on a national poll during a thoroughly un-election period that it has reached 5% before. And this comes after polling a healthy 3% only a month ago.

Maybe the Express campaign, the Euro crisis, prisoner votes, knife crime backsliding and all that what have you are having an impact at last.

Wonder what that would do to marginal seats across the country, for whichever party?
