Ed Miliband Pulls Ahead Of David In Latest Labour Leadership Poll

As the unveiling of the new leader of the Labour Party draws closer, the latest poll shows Ed Miliband taking a narrow lead over his brother David, who has been favourite to succeed Gordon Brown since the start of the race.

The suggestion is that, with enough second preference votes, the younger Miliband brother could snatch victory at the last minute.

It is David, however, with his much wider experience in government,  who is still considered the candidate most likely to beat the Tories at the next election and remains the bookie's favourite to win the contest.

This leadership election is turning out to be much closer than many anticipated.

Despite being impressed with Ed's performance in the initial stages of the campaign, I still predict that David will emerge as the new Labour leader come September 25.
