We have a ComRes opinion poll in The Independent on Sunday tomorrow, shared with the Sunday Mirror. Last month, we had the Labour lead at just five points and UKIP up to 14 per cent.
With the Budget coming up next week, we asked our “trust on the economy” tracker, comparing David Cameron and George Osborne with Ed Miliband and Ed Balls (on which Cameron and Osborne had a 5½-point lead last month). We also asked if people agreed or disagreed with these two statements:
The Chancellor George Osborne’s current economic plan is not working
The Chancellor George Osborne’s current economic plan is right for the country in the long term
We also sought to assess whether leaders were assets or liabilities to their parties by asking whether people had a favourable or unfavourable view of each of the four parties (including UKIP) and their leaders. Which is relevant to the speculation about the Conservative Party changing leader: we asked if people agreed or disagreed with the following:
The Conservative Party would have a better chance of winning the next election if it replaced David Cameron as leader
Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, would make a good prime minister
Theresa May, the Home Secretary, would make a good prime minister
I shall post the results here this evening, and the full tables will be at the ComRes website.Tagged in: comres, opinion polls
