Adam Drummond, Opinium research says:

"Voters may be starting to feel the effects of the recovery with the percentage saying the state of the economy is good or very good rising to the highest for many years while the percentage saying it is bad is barely half of what it was a year ago. However, this may not translate into votes the way that David Cameron would like: the change in Labour's poll lead (down from 12 points in February 2013 to 4 points now) has mainly been caused by Labour dropping rather than the Conservatives improving."
