So far two polls from the Sunday papers have appeared. First there is an Opinium poll in the Observer. In this case it was conducted from Wednesday to Friday, so was started before the government lost the Syria vote and obviously doesn’t have any questions related to the defeat. They found 24% supported British military intervention in Syria, 60% were opposed. The Observer article doesn’t mention any voting intention figures (though it does quote some crossbreaks by party support).
Secondly there is a Survation poll for the Mail on Sunday, which was conducted wholly on Friday, so after the defeat in the Commons. Voting intention there stands at CON 29%(+1), LAB 37%(+1), LDEM 11%(nc), UKIP 17%(-1) so no obvious impact on VI (changes are since the beginning of August).
Survation found 19% supported British military action against Syria, 65% were opposed. Asked how well or badly Cameron and Miliband had handled the crisis 29% thought Cameron had handled it well, 36% badly. For Miliband the figures were 27% well to 27% badly. Ed Miliband was seen as more in touch with public opinion on Syria (37% thought Miliband had been in touch compared to only 22% who thought the same about David Cameron), but asked more generally who’d they would trust to handle international crises, 40% said Cameron, 23% Miliband (37% said don’t know, presumably including people who wouldn’t trust either of them!)
Also in tomorrow’s papers will be the YouGov poll for the Sunday Times, which was also conducted after the defeat – I’ll update on that tomorrow.
