Bloomberg reports on a recent YouGov poll, placing Ken Livingstone at 53% to Boris Johnson's 47%. This is a tight result so early on, but it is clear that for Mr Johnson to tighten the incumbent's lead he needs to sharpen his message on transport:

"Transportation was a significant issue for 82 percent of those polled, followed by health services at 80 percent and policing at 79 percent, according to the poll. The mayor has little power over health services, which are controlled by the U.K. government-run National Health Service."
