ITV Wales have just published the topline results of the last Wales voting intention poll before tomorrow's general election:
CON 27% (+4)
LAB 35% (+2)
LDEM 23% (-6)
PLAID 10% (+1)
The comparisons are with the YouGov Wales poll of April 19th at the height of Cleggmania - it seems the Welsh electorate have now pretty much returned to their senses.
UPDATE: YouGov have now also published the regional figures for North Wales, so here they are:
CON 33% (+9)
LAB 33% (-8)
LDEM 19% (+4)
PLAID 10% (-4)
The comparisons this time are with the actual North Wales General Election results of 2005. The big losers since 2005 are Labour (down 8 points) and Plaid (down 4 points). To give you an idea of how the voting intentions in North Wales have changed over the past 5 years, see the Druid's North Wales poll tracker below:

At the time of the 3 March 2010 poll, there were many Plaid-supporting bloggers who claimed that the depressed Plaid Cymru figures for North Wales were purely down to YouGov's North Wales sample being too small. However, as the above poll tracker shows, Plaid's voting intention in North Wales has now consistently remained at 10% for the last three polls (3 March, 19 April, and 5 May). Furthermore, if these results are accurate, Plaid's claim that their polling figures have been adversely effected by not being included in the Leaders Debates does not hold water - at least not in North Wales. It is clear that Plaid's support slumped to 10% before the Leaders Debates and has remained there ever since.
Of course, we will find out how accurate these polls are tomorrow...
