YouGov poll gives Labour 3-point lead

According to the latest YouGov poll in the Telegraph, Brown has achieved a swing giving Labour a 3-point lead over the Conservatives. However, the poll results are a little odd. Apparently, whilst 38% said they would vote for Labout over 35% for the Tories the other questions seem to suggest that public is in a split mind.

The results show that 57% of people are not happy with the Government's record over the past ten years. A majority (although not overall) think the Cabinet may have new faces but still looks like the old on. 49% of people are not optimistic about Brown's future Government compared to 43% who are.

I guess this can be explained as the "Brown Bounce" that was to be expected, whilst the public has a better the devil you know than the devil you don't attitude?
