New ComRes Poll – Labour Slips to Just 1% Lead

There is a new ComRes telephone poll published tonight for tomorrow’s Independent which shows the Labour and the Conservatives almost neck and neck:

           Conservative            32% (no change)

                                        Labour                      33% (down 4%)

                                        Lib Dem                      9% (no change)

                                        UKIP                          14% (up 4%)

After a brief rise in Labour’s poll lead recently it seems that it is down to a single point.

In further findings:

Some 39 per cent of people agreed with the statement that their family’s finances would be better off with David Cameron and George Osborne than with Ed Miliband and Ed Balls. But only 28 per cent agreed when the statement was reversed to say that their family’s finances would be better off with the Labour leader and Shadow Chancellor.

Women (31 per cent) were more likely than men (24 per cent) to believe their family’s finances would be better off under Mr Miliband and Mr Balls, while men (43 per cent) were more likely than women (35 per cent) to think they would be better off under the Prime Minister and Chancellor.

Only 29 per cent believe Mr Balls would make a better chancellor than Mr Osborne, while 47 per cent disagree with this statement. Almost one in four people (23 per cent) who voted Labour in 2010 do not think Mr Balls would do a better job than Mr Osborne.

Three in ten people (30 per cent) say they would be more likely to vote Labour if Mr Balls were replaced as Shadow Chancellor.

Methodology: ComRes interviewed 1,002 GB adults by telephone 24- 26 January 2014. 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 www.comres.co.uk.
