UPDATED to include ICM
ICM for the S. Telegraph
|ICM: “…is the coalition the right way forward for Britain after the general election resulted in a hung parliament…”||AGREE|
|All surveyed including non-voters||64%|
|Lib Dem voters||77%|
ComRes for the S. Mirror/IoS
|“… the Lib Dems appear to have sold out on their principles.â€||AGREE||DISAGREE|
|All surveyed including non-voters||41%||47%|
|Lib Dem voters||34%||61%|
|â€œI believe Nick Clegg should have opted for a coalition with Labour rather than a deal with the Tories.â€||AGREE||DISAGREE|
|All surveyed including non-voters||35%||55%|
|Lib Dem voters||33%||59%|
So two more polls show broad backing generally for the coalition and specifically strong support amongst Lib Dem and Tory voters.
There were also voting intention numbers for the next election which is, of course, scheduled for May 2015. ComRes had Con 38% (+1 on general election result) Lab 34% +4 LD 21% -3. With ICM it’s CON 38%: LD 21%: LAB 33%. So both the Tories and Labour are up and the Lib Dems down.
It’s hard to say whether the coalition is the driver for these are the first voting intention surveys since Mr. Brown left Number 10.
Clegg’s party has taken a bit of a hit there – but a lot can happen over the next five years!
