New Ipsos MORI Poll – Labour and Tories Level Pegging

There is a a new Ipsos MORI poll published tonight by Reuters showing both Labour and the Conservatives down to 37% each:

            Conservative              37% (down 3%)

                                                        Labour                       37% (down 1%)

                                                        Lib Dem                      15% (up 1%)

The Lib Dems are up a point to 15%, a fact that is not reflected in the Reuters report.

For the first time since May’s election, more people were dissatisfied than satisfied with the government. Some 43 percent said they were satisfied compared with 47 percent who were dissatisfied.

Prime Minister David Cameron and his deputy Nick Clegg were viewed more positively. Cameron’s rating (57 percent were satisfied with the way he is doing his job) is the highest he has ever received.

Unusually for a party leader, Clegg was more popular with Conservative supporters than supporters of his own party.

Ipsos MORI interviewed a representative sample of 1,004 adults aged 18+ across Great Britain. Interviews were conducted by telephone September 10-12, 2010. Data are weighted to match the profile of the population.

  1. So Clegg is more popular with Conservative supporters than supporters of his own party. Could it be because:

    A) He has sold out his own supporters
    B) He is a Conservative
    c) Both of the above

    Good to see another non YouGov poll with the Tories below 40%.
