New ComRes Poll – Labour Fall to Lowest Level Since 2010!

There is a new ComRes telephone poll published tonight for tomorrow’s Independent which shows Labour falling to their lowest level of support since Ed Miliband became leader and a corresponding rise in UKIP support:

                                        Conservative            30% (down 2%)

                                        Labour                      34% (down 4%)

                                        Lib Dem                     10% (up 1%)

                                        UKIP                          17% (up 4%)

The news continues to get worse for the Leader of the Opposition. Not only is Ed Miliband maintaining the narrowest lead over the Conservatives but almost every recent poll shows that Labour is losing support. This poll suggests that Labour has lost 4% directly to UKIP. The Conservatives are down 2% this month but it is noteworthy that last month the party was UP 4%. However,  it is not all good news for David Cameron as a majority of the public now see the Conservatives as divided (56%), and just 29% think that he has the leadership qualities to win the next General Election. Conservative MPs should reflect on this before they launch any future public spats!

In further findings:

The Conservatives under David Cameron are more divided than they were under John Major:

Agree 56%

Disagree 23%

Don’t know 21%

David Cameron has the leadership qualities required to win a majority at the next General Election in 2015:

Agree 29%

Disagree 61%

Don’t know 10%

Methodology: ComRes interviewed 1,000 GB adults by telephone 24 – 26 May 2013. Data were weighted to be demographically representative of all GB adults and by past vote recall. ComRes is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules. Full tables at

  1. I somehow don’t see that UKIP are just taking support from the Conservatives. How would things look if UKIP was on 5%. Where would those other 12% be voting . If it was Tory can you honestly say that the Conservatives would have a 42- 34% lead over Labour in a midterm. Miliband or not I just can’t see that! The chances are that UKIP are getting support from accross the whole spectrum
