More good news for Gordon Brown

This is news from the weekend but it is still worth considering the implications of it. The Telegraph reported that:
"Gordon Brown has suffered a fresh blow to his political authority with an opinion poll showing the Conservatives enjoying a 24-point lead among voters in key marginal constituencies."
A poll carried out by CrosbyTextor in 30 key marginals showed the following voting intentions - Conservative 41%, Lib Dems 18%, Labour 17%. A year ago a similar poll had Labour six points ahead of the Conservatives (32% to 26%). Of the 30 seats in which the opinion poll was held, 20 seats are held by Labour, nine by the Liberal Democrats and one by the SNP.
