Our poll also asked voters to rate how much they liked -or disliked- the leaders heading their parties UK and Welsh election campaigns. When the likes and disliked were averaged out, no-one achieved even 50% likeability. Ed Miliband and Leanne Wood were the two most popular -or more accurately, the least disliked.
Here's how the leaders of the Welsh election campaigns rated:
- Leanne Wood (Plaid Cymru): 47%
- Kirsty Williams (Liberal Democrat): 41%
- Stephen Crabb (Conservative) 37%
- Owen Smith (Labour): 36%
- Pippa Bartolotti (Green): 35%
- Nathan Gill (UKIP): 30%
And the UK leaders:
- Ed Miliband (Labour): 47%
- David Cameron (Conservative): 40%
- Nick Clegg (Liberal Democrat): 40%
- Natalie Bennett (Green): 39%
- Nigel Farage (UKIP): 35%

The latest Welsh opinion poll shows Labour maintaining its lead in Wales. For the first time, the results of the Welsh Barometer Poll have been weighted to reflect how likely people say they are to vote.
- Labour 40%
- Conservative 26%
- UKIP 13%
- Plaid Cymru 12%
- Liberal Democrats 6%
- Green 4%
The figures show little change since the last two Welsh polls, which were both carried out just before the televised debate by party leaders.
- YouGov polled 1,143 Welsh adults for ITV Cymru Wales and Cardiff University, 13-15 April 2015.
The latest poll focussed attention on how people intend to vote for Westminster but it also asked about next year's Assembly election.Read the full story ›
The first Welsh opinion poll of the General Election campaign shows that Labour has slightly improved its position, reaching 40% for the first time in nearly a year. YouGov's latest Welsh Barometer Poll for ITV Cymru Wales and Cardiff University still puts the party well below the 50% plus it was polling before UKIP support started to climb two years ago. But it's 4% higher than the 2010 General Election result.
If opinion doesn't shift further during the election campaign, that should be enough to deliver Labour a couple of extra seats on May 7. The Conservatives on 25% are just 1% down on the result five years ago and Plaid Cymru's 11% shows no change on 2010. Those figures put both parties on course for no overall change in the number of Welsh seats they hold.
The inequalities built into the electoral system mean that the Liberal Democrats, down 15% on 5% can still hope to hold on to at least one seat but UKIP, up 12% to 14% are not on course to break through in any Welsh constituencies. The Greens are similarly disadvantaged, despite being neck and neck with the Liberal Democrats in this poll.
