New ICM Poll – Tories Jump 4% Ahead of Labour

There is a new ICM poll in tomorrow’s Sunday Telegraph showing the Conservatives regaining a lead over Labour following the last Guardian ICM poll at the end of last month which had Labour ahead:

            Conservative              38% (up 3%)

                                                  Labour                       34% (down 3%) 

                                                  Lib Dem                      18% (no change) 

Asked which party leader is “most likely to understand the financial situation of you and your family” Mr Cameron comes top with 29 per cent, ahead of Mr Miliband on 24 per cent and Mr Clegg on 15 per cent.

Now that all three parties have had the benefit (or otherwise) of their party conferences, and Labour have had the extra coverage coming from their Shadow Cabinet elections, we should start to see the polls settle down. The Comprehensive Spending Review on 20 October may of course have an impact as well.
