Others up to 20 percent with Harris

March 24th, 2010
Harris poll for The Metro Mar 22 Mar 15
CONSERVATIVES 35% 36%
LABOUR 28% 28%
LIB DEMS 17% 18%
LAB to CON swing from 2005 5% 5.5%

There’s a new Harris poll in the Metro which has both the Tories and the Lib Dem down a point and Labour on a standstill. The big feature is the very high level, 20%, for others and is similar to the trend that we saw with the Optimum survey on Monday for the Daily Express.

The comparisons here are with the last poll in the paper last week and not those of a fortnight ago which is how it is being reported. Odd.

There seems to be something with the newish on-line pollsters that’s getting these large shares for others though in the latest PB Angus Reid poll this was down to 14%.

So what will PMQs and the budget bring? Watch this space.
