A new opinion poll, conducted by YouGov between 18- 21 April, has revealed that 67% of Plaid Cymru voters would be 'pleased' to form a coalition with Labour.


The poll also shows that Labour voters would prefer a coalition with Plaid Cymru over a coalition with the Liberal Democrats.


The poll reveals that a Labour-Liberal Democrat coalition is not especially popular with Labour voters.


Four in ten (39%) of Labour voters say the would be 'delighted' or 'pleased' with a Labour-Liberal Democrat outcome, while 35% would be 'disappointed' or 'dismayed'.


Labour has led a Labour-Liberal Democrat coalition over the previous Senedd term, with Kirsty Williams, the only Liberal Democrat MS, serving as Education Minister.


Unsurprisingly, 92% of Conservative voters would be 'disappointed' or 'dismayed' with a Labour majority after the election.


Rather more surprising is the finding that a third of Plaid Cymru voters (32%) would be 'delighted' or 'pleased' with a Labour majority. This might suggest that some Plaid voters are comfortable with the idea if it means keeping the Tories out of government.
