Polling News: Labour on Track to Win Wythenshawe and Sale East

Lord Ashcroft has published the results of a telephone poll that interviewed 1,009 adults living in Wythenshawe and Sale East about their voting intentions for the upcoming parliamentary by-election.  The results show Labour on track for a very easy victory, with UKIP narrowly ahead of the Conservatives for second place:

Labour61%+17%
UKIP15%+12%
Conservative14%-12%
Lib Dems5%-17%
Other4%-1%


Lord Ashcroft's polls have generally proven to be rather accurate in recent by-elections, so a Labour win seems to be virtually a given now, with the more interesting questions being who will come second, and whether the Lib Dems will save their deposit.
