Is it so bad that voters want to stick with nurse?
There’s a new ICM poll out for the Sunday Telegraph and it shows that the Tories are back into the lead. The figures with changes on the last ICM poll a fortnight ago are: CON 38 (+2): LAB 36 (-2): LD 14 (nc)
ICM has the best track record for accuracy of any of the firms and carries out its fieldwork by phone. This is the first published poll by a telephone pollster since the autumn statement and the day of public sector strikes.
The numbers will be a great relief to the government following the awful news on the economy that had to be reported on Tuesday. At the same time the poll is very bad for Labour.
