Conservatives in 26% poll lead shocker!

According to PoliticalBetting Yougov have just released a poll showing the Conservatives having a poll lead of 26%.

Yougov is described as a controversial Internet pollster despite getting closer to actual results time and time again.

Any way, this article on PoliticalBetting has the following numbers:

Conservatives 49% or 462 seats
Labour 23% or 137 seats
Liberal Democrats 17% or 23 seats

Leading to a Conservative majority of 274, according to Anthony Wells swing calculator.

I have to say these are outstanding figures, and make Michael Foot's 1983 election defeat look like a stunning victory.
