New ComRes Poll – Labour and Tories Neck and Neck

There is a new ComRes online poll published in today’s Independent on Sunday which shows the Conservatives up by 3% and within spitting distance of Labour:

              Conservative             38% (up 3%)

                                        Labour                      39% (no change)

                                        Lib Dem                    11% (up 1%)

Changes shown are compared to last month’s online poll rather than the previous telephone poll.

Conservatives will be delighted to be neck and neck with Labour in another national poll. 1% difference is well within the margin of error in any national opinion poll. Most Conservatives had expected to be well behind Labour at this stage of the Parliament and it is a testament to how badly Ed Miliband is perceived as leader that the party has so far been unable to open up a meaningful lead. 

ComRes interviewed 2,004 GB adults online on 11 and 12 May 2011.
