New ComRes Poll – Labour’s Lead Cut to 9%
There is a new ComRes telephone poll published in tomorrow’s Independent which shows the Labour lead being trimmed to 9% with the Lib Dems also up sharply:
Conservative 33% (up 1%)
Labour 42% (no change)
Lib Dem 13% (up 4%)
UKIP 3% (down 5%)
In further findings:
The poll suggests that people are evenly divided over whether the Government’s own policies or the single currency crisis is to blame – despite repeated claims by David Cameron and George Osborne that the turmoil in the euro is having a “chilling effect” on the UK economy.
Asked whether the Government is more to blame than the eurozone crisis for the lack of economic growth in Britain, 43 per cent of people agree and 42 per cent disagree, with 14 per cent saying “don’t know.”
More than a quarter of Conservative voters (27 per cent) agree that the UK Government is more to blame, while 64 per cent disagree. Over a third of Liberal Democrat voters (36 per cent) agree, with 51 per cent disagreeing, while Labour supporters agree by a majority of Labour 58 per cent to 30 per cent.
