New ICM Poll – Tories Take the Lead!
There is a new ICM poll in tomorrow’s Guardian showing the Conservatives taking a 1% lead over Labour:
Conservative 37% (up 2%)
Labour 36% (down 2%)
Lib Dem 16% (down 2%)
Conservatives will be delighted to have taken the lead (albeit a small one) with one of the most credible pollsters. ICM has an excellent reputation and sits alongside YouGov as one of the two “Gold standard” pollsters based on their longer term record.
ICM Research interviewed a random sample of 1,014 adults aged 18 and above by telephone on 23-24 March 2011.
