Labour lead down to 8 with ComRes phone poll

Labour lead down to 8 with ComRes phone poll

Conservatives 34 (+1)

Labour 42 (-1)

Lib Dems 11 (nc)

Others 13 (nc)

The changes are from the last ComRes telephone poll which was carried out in March.

There is a large gender gap: 40 per cent of male voters will vote Conservative, 39 per cent  Labour and 8 per cent Lib Dem.

But only 29 per cent of women voters  will vote Conservative, while 45 per cent  will vote Labour, and 14 per cent Lib Dem.

On the economy.

Seven out of 10 people want the Government to do a U-turn on the economy to give priority to growth rather than spending cuts.

Some 72 per cent of the public agree that it is time for the Coalition to change its policy so it is focused more on promoting growth and less on cuts, while 17 per cent disagree and 11 per cent don’t know.

Significantly, a majority of  people who voted Conservative (64 per cent) and Liberal Democrat (68 per cent) at the 2010 general election want to see a change of course. So do 86 per cent of people who voted Labour.
