New Opinium Poll – Labour Drop to 35%

 There is a new Opinium poll in tomorrows Observer newspaper showing Labour down 3% to just 35%:

            Conservative            29% (up 1%)

                                                           Labour                      35% (down 3%)

                                                           Lib Dem                      8% (no change)

                                                           UKIP                         17% (no change)

All the reports suggest that UKIP is up 1% to 17% and yet the last Opinium poll I reported two weeks ago also had UKIP on 17%, so until I have resolved this, I have shown them as unchanged.

Opinium Research carried out an online survey of 1,969 GB adults aged 18+ from 16 to 18 April 2013. Results have been weighted to nationally representative criteria.

  1. I now live in France so it is academic but watch the rise in UKIP’s share, Richard. They may only win about 50 County Council sdeats on May 2. But could leech sufficient disgruntled Tory votes to lose you far more seats and County Councils.
