Voters give a big “thumbs down” in the first post-budget polls
Reports are coming in of two new polls showing big moves to the Tories. YouGov has the party on 43% a massive 16% ahead of Labour.
The shares with comparisons on the last YouGov survey at the end of February are: CON 43% (+3): LAB 27% (-6): LD 16% (nc)
ICM for tomorrow’s News of the World has Cameron’s party with a lead of 9% – up from just 3% in the last survey from the pollster two weeks ago. Thes are the shares with changes on the last survey from the pollster – CON 40% (+3): LAB 31% (-3): LD 20% (-1)
According to the Sunday Times, which commissioned the YouGov survey, the 16% lead is the biggest that the Tories have enjoyed for 20 years.
I don’t think that that is correct. On June 9th 1990 ICM was reporting a a Conservative lead of 19%.
