We have a ComRes poll in The Independent on Sunday tomorrow (shared with the Sunday Mirror), which offers a snapshot of the state of public opinion after the party conference season and before the Comprehensive Spending Review.
In addition to voting intention, we are the first to ask people “who do you trust most to steer Britain’s economy through the current downturn”, David Cameron and George Osborne or Ed Miliband and Alan Johnson?
We also asked a series of questions about public spending cuts, asking whether people agreed or disagreed with the following:
The Coalition Government understands the interests of the wealthy better than the interests of ordinary people
It is fair that students should pay more for their university education even though their parents’ generation didn’t
Welfare benefit cuts will hit hardest the poorest, elderly and most vulnerable in society
The top rate of income tax at 50p in the pound on earnings over £150,000 a year should be raised to 60p in the pound
The loss of hundreds of thousands of public sector jobs is a price worth paying to reduce the deficit
I expect that the public spending cuts to be announced next week will be fair
I shall put the results up here tonight; the full tables will be available at ComRes.
