A final poll revealed today shows Boris has increased his lead to six points and is on course to deliver a 53-47 % win.
The YouGov poll suggests that the plea by Labour campaign chiefs for supporters to “hold their noses” and vote for labour have fallen on deaf ears.
YouGov said: “Londoners like politicians with character and a streak of independence.
“Labour supporters used to find Ken entertaining. Now he simply irritates many of them. That’s why this basically Labour city looks set to re-elect a Tory Mayor.” Almost two thirds of those voters said they were backing Mr Johnson mainly because they disliked Mr Livingstone, while 23 per cent said it was because they liked the Mayor.
