The LDs slump to just 6 pc in Euros survey from pollster that traditionally gives them the highest shares

Tories drop 3 in latest ICM Westminster poll

Clegg’s Farage debate gamble looks like a failure

For me ICM IS the gold standard and I regard its monthly survey for the Guardian as the most important polling event of the month. ICM is also the firm that traditionally reports the best shares for the Lib Dems.

Tonight the firm has the yellows down 3% to meagre 6% for the May 22 EP elections which would mean on a uniform swing that they’d lose every single MEP.

This is really bad for Clegg and his party but it’s hard to see what can be done.

The Westminster figures are bad for the Tories showing, perhaps, the damage from the Miller expenses affair.
