Miliband soaring high in the polls despite EU referendum doldrums

Labour's lead in the daily You Gov tracker poll grew to the highest size ever recorded by the firm today.

The opposition is now enjoying a 15-point lead, with Labour on 45% and the Conservatives on 30%.

The extent of the lead confirms suspicions that David Cameron's EU referendum speech had a limited effect on voters' intentions.

Labour's lead had recovered to 12% in YouGov surveys by last Friday and it now appears to be soaring to unprecedented levels.


The poll comes as Chris Huhne's resignation triggered a by-election in Eastleigh.

The seat is a straight Tory - Liberal Democrat fight but Ed Miliband will want to improve Labour's showing to demonstrate a sense of momentum around the party.
