New Ipsos MORI Poll – Labour Lead Trimmed to 9%

There is a new Ipsos MORI poll reported today for the Evening Standard showing the Labour lead dropping slightly to 9% after last month’s poll had the lead jumping to 10%:

         Conservative              31% (down 2%)

                                                        Labour                        40% (down 3%)

                                                        Lib Dem                      10% (up 1%)

                                                        UKIP                              6%

Approval ratings for the government and the three party leaders have not moved significantly in the last month but seem to confirm the trends since the beginning of the year.

  • A third (34%) of British adults are satisfied with the way David Cameron he is doing his job as Prime Minister while 58% are dissatisfied. Mr Cameron started the year with 46% satisfied and 47% dissatisfied with his performance.
  • Ed Miliband’s satisfaction ratings have improved since the start of 2012. While the percentage of those satisfied with his performance has remained stable over the last four months (35% are satisfied), there has been a decline in those who are dissatisfied (48% now compared to 56% in January 2012).
  • A quarter (26%) are satisfied with the way Nick Clegg is doing his job as Deputy Prime Minister and around 63% dissatisfied, a decline from 32% satisfied and 55% dissatisfied in January 2012.
  • Satisfaction with the government has also been fairly stable over the last three months, 28% are satisfied with the way the government is running the country and 66% are dissatisfied. This compares with a peak of 40% satisfied in January.

Ipsos MORI interviewed a representative sample of 1,016 adults aged 18+ across Great Britain. Interviews were conducted by telephone 9-11 June 2012.  Data are weighted to match the profile of the population.
