Farage’s party hits record high with any pollster
This evening ICM phone poll for the Guardian is the first survey we’ve had from any firm other than YouGov since Ukip performance in the May 2 local election.
The figures above are sensational. ICM the firm that had Ukip with the lowest shares now has them with the highest. Each of the three main parties drops 4% compared with a month ago.
The firm has confirmed to me that there has been no change in their method.
There was a time when the phone pollsters had Ukip at far lower levels than the online firms. How dfferent that is tonight.
ICM has by far the nest record for polling accuracy of any of the firms that do regular Westminster voting intention polling.
These figures are sensational.
According to Electoral Calculus tonight’s ICM poll would see LAB 359, CON 228, LD 35, Ukip 0 seats. A LAB majority of 68.
