New Ipsos MORI Poll – Lib Dems, UKIP and Greens Almost Level!

There is a new Ipsos MORI poll reported today for the London Evening Standard showing the Conservatives falling back a bit after last month’s poll showing them level with Labour:

      Conservative               32% (down 3%)

                                                        Labour                         38% (up 3%)

                                                        Lib Dem                         8% (down 1%)

                                                        UKIP                               8% (down 2%)

                                                        Green                              7% (up 3%)

MORI does have a reputation as being somewhat erratic month on month but this poll is roughly in line with other recent polls. The unusual feature is the low rating for UKIP and the high rating for the Green Party.

In further findings:

Satisfaction with all major party leaders has fallen after a post-conference boost last month:

  • 35% of British adults are satisfied with David Cameron’s performance as Prime Minister, while 56% are dissatisfied. This gives him a net rating (% satisfied minus % dissatisfied) of -21. Mr Cameron’s net rating among Conservative supporters is +55 (76% satisfied, 21% dissatisfied).
  • 31% are satisfied with Ed Miliband’s performance as Labour leader, while 54% are dissatisfied, giving him a net rating of -23. Mr Miliband’s net rating among Labour supporters is +4 (48% satisfied, 44% dissatisfied).
  • 22% are satisfied with Nick Clegg’s performance as Deputy Prime Minister, while 65% are dissatisfied, giving him a net rating of -43. This is not far off his lowest ever point of -45 in October 2012.
  • 28% are satisfied with Nigel Farage’s performance as UKIP leader, while 41% are dissatisfied, giving him a net rating of -13, the lowest since Ipsos MORI started recording his personal ratings in March 2013.
  • 29% are satisfied with the way the Government is running the country, while 60% are dissatisfied, giving them a net rating of -31.

Ipsos MORI interviewed a representative sample of 1,019 aged 18+ across Great Britain. Interviews were conducted by telephone 9-11 November 2013.
