New Ipsos MORI Poll – Labour Take a 6% Lead
Conservative 35% (down 3%)
Labour 41% (up 3%)
Lib Dem 12% (no change)
All three main party leaders recorded negative satisfaction ratings, with more voters saying they were unhappy with the job they were doing than satisfied.
Mr Cameron’s personal rating was down 10 points since last month on minus 11, with 40% saying they were pleased with the job he was doing as PM, compared with 51% who were not. Liberal Democrat Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg scored minus 32 and Mr Miliband minus 25.
For the first time since he became leader in 2010, the monthly Political Monitor found more Labour supporters dissatisfied (48%) than satisfied (44%) with Mr Miliband’s performance.
Satisfaction in the Government’s performance was down 21 points since last month to minus 34.
MORI tends to show more dramatic fluctuations than other pollsters but the findings that Miliband is losing the confidence of Labour voters could be significant for the chances of his survival.
