New Opinium Poll – UKIP 9% Ahead of Lib Dems

 There is a new Opinium poll in tomorrows Observer newspaper showing UKIP moving 9% ahead of the Lib Dems:

            Conservative            28% (no change)

                                                           Labour                      38% (no change)

                                                           Lib Dem                      8% (down 1%)

                                                           UKIP                         17% (up 1%)

The party leaders have each suffered a small fall in their net approval ratings since the last poll. David Cameron’s net rating drops to -24% from -23% while Ed Miliband’s falls to -18% from -14%. Nick Clegg’s falls to -47% compared to -45% two weeks ago.

Opinium Research carried out the online survey of 1,948 British adults aged 18+ from 2-4 April 2013

  2. Indeed it could have Howard. My main interest will be how well UKIP do in the County Council Elections in much of England n 2nd May both as to how many seats will they gain for themselves and moreover the intervention effect where the presence of a UKIP Candidate will leech sufficient votes from the Conservative Candidate or Councillor to lose them their seat probably to Labour and how this will change the colour of some County Councils..
