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:

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