New ICM Poll – Tories Take the Lead as Lib Dems Surge!
There is a new ICM poll in tomorrow’s Guardian showing the Conservatives overtaking Labour to take the lead in the polls:
Conservative 37% (no change)
Labour 36% (down 3%)
Lib Dem 16% (up 4%)
This will be a huge blow to Ed Miliband and Labour after two weeks of bad coverage for David Cameron and a feeling that Miliband has performed better than he had been. It is also a boost for the Lib Dems.
ICM Research interviewed a random sample of 1,003 adults aged 18 and above by telephone on 15-17 July 2011.
