New Ipsos MORI Poll – Tories Close the Gap to 2%

There is a new Ipsos MORI/Reuters poll reported today showing Labour’s lead slashed to just 2%:

Conservative              35% (up 1%)

                                                        Labour                       37% (down 3%)

                                                        Lib Dem                      13% (down 2%)

In other findings:

Thirty-three percent of those polled thought the Conservatives had the best policies for the economy, against 23 percent who backed Labour and eight percent for the Lib Dems.

47 percent said they were dissatisfied with the way Labour leader Ed Miliband is doing his job, while only 31 percent were satisfied.

Ipsos MORI interviewed 1,008 adults aged 18+ between 10 and 12 September.

  1. Pretty pointless, we are no where near an election. By that time I have full confidence your Tory Party will be toast! :b

    • Charles – we will see but polls are a snapshot of current opinion and they suggest that the Conservatives are doing much better than seemed likely a year ago!

  2. Richard, no doubt the Libya conflict has helped Cameron slightly. With the economy flat lining the gap is bound to increase. Osborne’s policies are clearly hurting and not working my dear chap!
