New ICM Poll – Lib Dems Up to 18%
There is a new ICM poll in tomorrow’s Guardian showing a Labour lead of just 3% due to a 1% fall in Labour support:
Conservative 35% (no change)
Labour 38% (down 1%)
Lib Dem 18% (up 3%)
Conservatives will be delighted to be so close to Labour in this poll, despite what had seemed a widening gap between the tow parties. This is the highest score for the Lib Dems this year and they will be very pleased to appear to be continuing their polling recovery from the depths of just 8% achieved in some polls.
ICM Research interviewed a random sample of 1,008 adults aged 18 and above by telephone on 18-20 February 2011.
