Four point boost for LDs from ComRes

Four point boost for LDs from ComRes

ComRes: ITV News/Independent Apr 11 Apr 8
LABOUR 30% 32%
LIB DEMS 20% 16%
LAB to CON swing from 2005 5% 5%

The Independent has teamed up with ITV news to do two general election polls a week – the first of which appears this evening.

The gap is the same as the last ComRes poll – the big difference being that both Labour and the Tories are down two each with Clegg’s party moving up four.

So a poll that’s giving the same broad picture as the others.

And it’s the same broad message from YouGov

YG daily poll – The Sun Apr 12 Apr 11
LABOUR 33% 31%
LIB DEMS 20% 20%
LAB to CON swing from 2005 4.5% 4.5%

The big feature of the daily poll is the very low figure for others which is sharply down to just 8% – or exactly what it was at the 2005 election. It could be that the pollster has picked up a key trend here – a squeeze on other parties as the battle is framed in terms of the big boys.
