The Lib Dems the big gainer in new ComRes phone poll

July 2nd, 2012

And also the ComRes TRUTH LEAGUE

A second phone poll in a week has good news for the Lib Dems. Last Tuesday ICM had Clegg’s party up 3 to 14%. Tonight ComRes has them up 4 to 14% – a level they last touched in February.

This follows yesterday’s ICM Wisdom poll where respondents are asked to guess the general election shares for the main parties. This had 32/39/17.

Also from ComRes there is an online poll for ITV news on which profession and occupation are trusted most. As can be seen bankers drop to the bottom of the trust table.
