The final phone poll of 2013 has almost no change on November

December 17th, 2013

UPDATE – But LAB YouGov leads jumps 6 to 8%

So no autumn statement boost with ComRes phone

There’s the December phone poll from ComRes for the Indy just out and the figures are almost exactly the same as in November. Only shift is that UKIP are down 1.

The firm’s phone polls clearly use a different methodology and are treated as a separate series from the online polling.

Those polled were asked to choose their most important priority for the Government over the next 5 years from a range of options about the economy. Most popular was ensuring that it continues to grow (41%) followed by ensuring wages rise faster than prices (25%); keeping inflation down (17%); reducing the government deficit (12%); other (3%) and don’t know (2%).

Younger people are more likely than older ones to place more importance on wages rising faster than prices. Some 33% of 18-34 year-olds say this should be the top priority, compared to only 18% of those aged 55 and over.
