Ukip’s 14% is the highest ever for a phone survey
With the Times deciding to get rid of its monthly Populus poll there are now only regular three telephone surveys each month – ICM for the Guardian, Ipsos-MORI for the Standard and this one – ComRes for the Independent.
As can be scene from the pie chart Ukip has advanced to 14%, its highest rating in a telephone survey by any pollster.
It shows LAB on 38% (down five on last month), CON on 28% (down three), Ukip on 14% (up five ), the and the LDs on 12 per cent (up four).
The post-Budget survey suggests that LAB has made little progress in winning the economic argument in the past year. Some 29% of people trust Dave and Osbo to make the right decisions about the economy, while 58% do not â€“ a net rating of minus 29 points. Meanwhile, only 22% trust the TwoEds to make the right economic decisions, while 62% do not â€“ a net rating of minus 40 , no better than the partyâ€™s score in previous ComRes polls in January and October last year.
The public is still more likely to blame todayâ€™s economic problems on the previous LAB Government than the Coalition. Asked whether the Coalition is more to blame, 54% disagree and 32% agree.
Another poll, from TNS BMRB has Ukip at 17. This week’s shares: CON 27% (+1), LAB 37% (-2), LD 10% (-3), UKIP 17% (+4).
