The party’s 44% is the best with the firm since the election
Labour has moved into its biggest lead over the Conservatives since the general election, according to a ComRes telephone poll for the Independent.
David Cameron and Chancellor George Osborne are also seen as out of touch with ordinary people by two-thirds of voters.
The survey put CON 33%(-2): LAB 44%(+6): LD 12% (-3). The change in the Labour vote is well outside the margin of error and suggests that Miliband’s party has been prospering from the government’s problems.
The LD drop is large but Clegg’s party will be relieved to still be in double figures.
Labourâ€™s 44% rating is the highest it has achieved in a ComRes poll since the election two and a half years ago.
67% agreed the Prime Minister and the Chancellor were out of touch with ordinary people, with 26% disagreeing. Even 40% of Tory voters viewed the two men as out of touch.
