Last night brought news of a Populus poll for The Times showing the Lib Dems ahead of the Tories by 33%-28%, a Lib Dem lead of 5%.

But tonight a Survation poll for the Mail on Sunday has shown the Tories ahead of the Lib Dems by 33%-29%, a Tory lead of 4%.

Survation conducted an Eastleigh poll a fortnight ago - then they found the Lib Dems leading the Tories by 36%-33%. Here's how the figures compare:

Lib Dems 29% (-4%) Conservatives 33% (n/c) Ukip 21% (+5%) Labour 13% (n/c)

Only one conclusion to draw from all this: it's too tight to call! So let's keep campaigning…

Next Friday morning will be too late. There has rarely been a more important by-election for the party.

It's up to us whether we remember it for the right reasons or not…
