New ComRes Poll – Tory Surge Cuts Labour’s Lead Back to 5%

There is a new ComRes telephone poll published tonight for tomorrow’s Independent which shows the Conservatives cutting Labour’s lead back to 5%:

           Conservative            32% (up 4%)

                                        Labour                      37% (up 1%)

                                        Lib Dem                      9% (down 2%)

                                        UKIP                          11% (down 1%)

After a brief rise in Labour’s poll lead recently it seems that its lead is back down to mid-single figures.

In further findings:

According to ComRes, the public do not trust either David Cameron or Ed Miliband to protect the National Health Service. The Labour leader (33 per cent)  is trusted by slightly more people than the Prime Minister (30 per cent). Some 56 per cent do not trust Mr Miliband, giving him a net rating of minus 23 points. Some 61 per cent do not trust Mr Cameron, making his net rating minus 31 points.

Attempts by ministers to blame  Labour for the problems in the NHS appear to have failed. Asked whether the present Government has a better record on the NHS than the previous Labour Government, 28 per cent agree but 57 per cent disagree.

Methodology: ComRes interviewed 1,002 GB adults by telephone 22- 24 November 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. Obviously the latest YouGov polls (which you put so much faith in) giving Labour a 7 point lead failed to catch your eye.
