Poll alert

John Rentoul

comres Poll alertWe have a ComRes opinion poll in The Independent on Sunday tomorrow, shared with the Sunday Mirror. This will be the first non-YouGov poll of voting intention since the Prime Minister’s speech on Europe on Wednesday. We asked if people agreed or disagreed with a number of statements about the European Union that we have asked about before, so that we can track the changes.

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

The UK should leave the EU regardless

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

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

David Cameron is turning out to be a good Prime Minister

We also asked about some new statements on the EU:

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

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

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

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

On terrorism and north Africa:

Britain should send military advisers and special forces to north Africa to fight al-Qa’ida terrorists, but not regular soldiers

British intervention in north Africa against al-Qa’ida would make Britain a target for terrorists

David Cameron is right to say that Britain must be prepared to fight al-Qa’ida terrorism for a generation

On the royal princes:

Prince Harry talking about killing Taliban will make it more dangerous for British soldiers in Afghanistan.

Prince William should be allowed to serve with the RAF in Afghanistan

And finally:

Schools are closing too easily because of snow

Doubling the price of a lottery ticket is unfair

ComRes’s last online survey for The Independent on Sunday/Sunday Mirror is here; my report of yesterday’s Populus (which does not include voting intention) is here.

I shall post the results here this evening, and the tables will be on the ComRes website.
