New poll: Tories ahead of Lib Dems in Eastleigh
The Tories could be on track for victory in the Eastleigh by-election, according to a new poll.
Research by Survation, for the Mail on Sunday, put the Conservatives on 33% - four points ahead of the Liberal Democrats.
The figures reverse recent findings that suggested Nick Clegg's party would narrowly retain the seat vacated by disgraced former Cabinet minister Chris Huhne.
However, the advantages are within the pollsters' margin for error - suggesting with less than a week left the contest will be very close.
