ComRes’s monthly poll for the Independent has a Conservative lead of 14 points. The full topline figures with changes from last month are CON 40%(+2), LAB 26%(-5), LDEM 20%(+3). The poll was conducted between Apr 25th and 27th.
Nothing much new here but a confirmation of the trend, the Conservatives seem to have an increasingly stable double point lead, more polls are showing Labour pushed below the 30 point level and, without much real remark, the Lib Dems are gradually increasing their support – this is the first time since last April that a pollster other than ICM have shown them at 20% or above.
We still await the possibility of an ICM poll on the London elections. MORI have confirmed there’s nothing more to come from them for the mayoral contest, and we know that there is still a YouGov poll to come. ICM, over to you…
UPDATE: Just a thought, that’s only a six point gap between Labour and the Lib Dems. If the Lib Dems moved to second place it would be a huge boost for them and their image as real contender. Lib Dems winning here and all that. Still – just an idle thought, it’s a long way away yet.
