The monthly online ComRes poll for the Independent on Sunday and Sunday Mirror is out tonight with topline figures of CON 32%(+2), LAB 37%(+2), LDEM 9%(+1), UKIP 15%(-4).
The Labour lead is unchanged, but UKIP drop four points. ComRes’s online polls typically show some of the highest levels of UKIP support, and this is the lowest figure for UKIP they’ve shown for ten months. As ever though, don’t read too much into a single poll, unless other polls start showing a general decline in UKIP support it’s probably just a blip.
The poll also reasked the favourability question it asked last month. You might remember that last month it came out with the rather surprising finding that UKIP had the highest proportion of people saying they had a favourable view of the party. This month’s figures instead show people have the most favourable view of Labour (31%), followed by the Conservatives (28%), followed by UKIP (24%). As usual with these questions Cameron outpolls his party (31%, so three points higher than the Tories), Miliband underperforms his (22%, so nine points lower than Labour).
