CON up 5 – Ukip down 4 percent in new ComRes online poll

January 26th, 2013

Is Dave’s IN-OUT strategy starting to work?

The general rule, when you see changes like the UKIP drop, is to wait for other pollsters to see if they follow the same trend.

Amongst other findings in the poll from ComRes for tomorrow Indy on Sunday and the Sunday Mirror.

 

Cameron versus Miliband

David Cameron is good at standing up for Britain’s interests in the European Union

Agree: 42% Disagree: 33%

Three quarters (76%) of Conservative voters and half (53%) of Liberal Democrats agree.

 

If Ed Miliband were prime minister, he would be good at standing up for Britain’s interests in the EU

Agree: 22% Disagree: 44%

Just half (51%) of Labour voters, 5% of Conservative voters and 14% of Liberal Democrats agree.

 

David Cameron is turning out to be a good Prime Minister

Agree: 32% (+5) Disagree: 46% (-6)

(Change since last month) This is his best net score (-14) since June 2011.

Europe

If a referendum were held on Britain’s membership of the EU, I would vote for Britain to leave the EU

Agree: 43% (-3) Disagree: 31% (+1)

(Change since May 2012)

If some EU powers cannot be restored to the UK, we should leave the EU

Agree: 57% (-1) Disagree: 21% (+3)

(Change since November) Half (50%) of Labour voters agree, as do 65% of Conservative voters and 47% of Liberal Democrat voters.

The UK should leave the EU regardless

Agree: 33% (-10) Disagree: 43% (+10)

(Change since November) This sharp change may reflect confidence that the UK will be able to negotiate better terms.

Leaving the European Union would be bad for the British economy in terms of lost jobs and trade

Agree: 38% (+2) Disagree: 36% (-4)

(Change since May 2012)

By promising a referendum on Europe in the future, David Cameron is causing years of uncertainty which will be bad for the British economy

Agree: 43% Disagree: 30%

One in five (21%) Conservative voters agree.

I expect a Labour Government under Ed Miliband would try to abolish the pound and replace it with the euro

Agree: 30% Disagree: 32% Don’t know: 38%
