Not that Labour is in a good spot, but the Tory gain simply cannot mathematically be explained by Labour losses. UKIP lost as much as Labour did, while it is implied that SNP and Greens (and maybe Plaid Cymru) also lose ground with a grand total of 7 % of the lot (compared to just over 12 % now). Could be polling simplification, could be indicative, could be a bad poll. Myriad possibilities, really. I think we've all learned from last year that one poll hardly makes or breaks something.

A drop in the 'undecideds', perhaps.

British election polling is notoriously bad, however.
