New Ipsos MORI Poll – Tories Draw Level With Labour

There is a new Ipsos MORI poll reported for the London Evening Standard showing the Conservatives drawing level with Labour:

      Conservative               35% (up 1%)

                                                        Labour                         35% (down 2%)

                                                        Lib Dem                         9% (down 1%)

                                                        UKIP                            10% (down 1%)

We are now well into the post-Conference season and after an initial narrowing the polls the latest MORI poll shows Labour’s lead completely having disappeared. YouGov’s poll today had Labour just 4% ahead and yesterday’s TRS-BRNB poll had Labour a mere 2% in front. MORI does sometimes jump around month on month but the individual changes in party ratings are small this month. All of the recent polls are pretty consistently showing Labour either barely ahead or level pegging with the Conservatives.

I think my earlier suggestion that at least one poll will show the Conservatives ahead before the end of the year is now looking even more likely!

Ipsos MORI interviewed a representative sample of 1,004 aged 18+ across Great Britain. Interviews were conducted by telephone 12-15 October 2013.
