There is a new Ipsos MORI poll published by Reuters showing the Conservatives and Labour swapping places after last month’s poll showed the Conservatives 3% ahead:
Conservative 36% (down 3%)
Labour 39% (up 3%)
Lib Dem 14% (no change)
Despite concern about the effects of specific cuts, the government is continuing to convince the public that it has the best approach for dealing with the economy. A majority of the public still agrees with the government that there is a read need to cut spending on public services to pay off the national debt (56%).
Ipsos MORI interviewed a representative sample of 1,005 adults aged 18+ across Great Britain. Interviews were conducted by telephone 12-14 Nov 2010. Data are weighted to match the profile of the population.
