The LAB lead in first telephone poll the month down to 9 percent

December 12th, 2012

UKIP up 4 to 7 percent

The first phone poll for December, the monthly political monitor from Ipsos-MORI, is out in the Evening Standard. The charts above shows the voting intention split.

On leader satisfaction Cameron is down from 40 to 37% since while Ed Miliband is at 40%. Nick Clegg is trailing on 27.

The UKIP share in November recorded by the firm was just 3% and seemed like an outlier. All the phone pollsters have has Farage’s party in the 6-7% range. So today’s jump to 7% brings MORI into line.

There’ll be lots more detail from the poll later.
