New Harris Poll – Tory Lead at 8%

There is a new Harris poll reported today for the Metro which shows the Conservatives maintaining an 8% lead over Labour. The party ratings are:

            Conservative              37% (down 2%)

                                                                              Labour                       29% (down 1%)

                                                                              Lib Dem                      18% (down 4%)    

Strangely all the major parties are down. However, the maths don’t work on this one. Others are shown as at 12% which totals just 96%. What happened to the other 4%?!

  1. Funny that despite the 8% Tory lead slightly more people in the Harris/Metro poll identify with Labour than the Conservatives:

    “Regardless of voting intentions, 26 per cent of people say they feel they are a part of the Labour party, compared with 25 per cent for the Tories and nine per cent for the Lib Dems. “
