The Ipsos-MORI guide to potential tactical voting
One of the pieces of polling that’s come out today which has been a surprise is this from Ipsos-MORI. The question was delightfully simple and economical with words “If you had to vote for another party, which party, if any, would it be?”
The summary results are above. For greater details including the crucial LD2010 cross-tabs go here.
The big figure which is very much out of line with previous polling is the 30% of LAB supporters who said they would be ready to vote LD “if they had to”.
Amongst the crucial potential swing group of 2010 LDs 17% said CON while 31% said LAB.
Tories might be heartened by the 37% of UKIP supporters saying CON though I think they might have hoped for a bigger figure.
Another striking set of figures is that many more CON supporters are ready to vote LD than UKIP.
