New ComRes Poll – Lib Dems Up to 18%
There is a new ComRes poll published tonight for tomorrow’s Independent which is the first non-YouGov poll for a while. It shows a much healthier position for the Lib Dems who have reversed last month’s 2% fall:
Conservative 38% (down 1%)
Labour 34% (up 1%)
Lib Dem 18% (up 2%)
In other findings:
There are signs that men are more opposed than women to the Liberal Democrats’ decision to join forces with the Tories. ComRes found that only 15 per cent of men would vote Liberal Democrat in a general election today, compared to 21 per cent of women. Tory support is also unevenly split between the sexes; 41 per cent of men and 34 per cent of women would now vote for David Cameron’s party.
ComRes telephoned a random sample of 1,000 GB adults on September 3-5, 2010. Data were weighted demographically and by past vote.
