New Opinium Poll – UKIP 5% Ahead of Lib Dems

 There is a new Opinium poll in tomorrows Observer newspaper showing Labour’s lead at 10% but UKIP 5% ahead of the Lib Dems:

            Conservative            31% (up 2%)

                                                           Labour                      41% (up 2%)

                                                           Lib Dem                     7% (down 1%)

                                                           UKIP                         12% (down 3%)

In further findings:

53% of the British public believe that the UK should withdraw from the EU if David Cameron cannot negotiate a significant return of powers, while 19% disagreed.

A majority (57%) also believed that the UK’s interests are fundamentally different to other member states. However, there was little optimism about the government’s ability to renegotiate a return of powers while remaining a member of the single market.

Only 25% of people believed it was likely that the prime minister would be successful in taking powers back in areas such as employment, compared to 47% who said it was unlikely.

Opinium Research carried out the online survey of 1,964 British adults aged 18+ from 8-11 January 2013

  2. I like it too, but I doubt very much that David Cameron is smiling.
