Poll alert

John Rentoul

comres Poll alertWe have a ComRes opinion poll in tomorrow’s Independent on Sunday, shared with the Sunday Mirror. Last month’s poll had the Labour lead down to six points.

As well as asking people how they would vote, we asked them how they rated David Cameron compared with previous prime ministers since Harold Wilson (who became leader of the Labour Party 50 years ago this week). Thus we have compiled a league table of the eight prime ministers since 1964.

We also asked if people agreed or disagreed with these statements about meat:

I have stopped eating meat ready meals as a result of the reports of horsemeat in British food

I have stopped eating meat altogether as a result of the reports of horsemeat in British food

All meat imports should be banned until we can be sure of their origin

The Government has responded well to the findings of horsemeat in ready meals

We repeated our long-running series about which team people trusted on the economy:

I trust David Cameron and George Osborne to make the right decisions about the economy

I trust Ed Miliband and Ed Balls to make the right decisions about the economy

And finally we asked a couple of questions about the Pope’s abdication:

It would be a positive step for the Catholic church if they chose an African as their next Pope

The Catholic church is a force for good in the world

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

    Sales of horse meat have risen 1000% since the fraud was announced so I look forward the the poll results with interest.

    The question of choice of Pope is impertinent – to say the least!

    Old geezer retires, will be replaced by another old geezer chosen by a group of old geezers (no women allowed) and this is the 21st century. Any wonder I’m an Atheist..

    It is the hand of God that guides the conclave.

    Sounds like a good reality show “Pick the Pope” bring your own imaginary friend.
