New Populus Poll – Labour’s Lead Just 1%!

There is a new Populus online poll out today which shows Labour’s lead over the Conservatives at just 1%:

      Conservative              34% (up 2%)

      Labour                         35% (no change)

                                                           Lib Dem                         9% (down 1%)

                                                           UKIP                             13% (no change)

The Labour party has now sunk to a consistent rating of the mid-30’s, its worst polling level since Ed Miliband became Labour leader. It is also notable how Labour’s lead has not been above 6% for some weeks now. The game is really now on for next year’s General Election!

Populus interviewed a random sample of 2,060 adults online between 30th-1st May 2014. Interviews were conducted across Great Britain and the results have been weighted to be representative of all British adults. Populus is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules.
