We have a ComRes opinion poll in The Independent on Sunday tomorrow, shared with the Sunday Mirror. Our poll last month gave Labour a nine-point lead, about in line with the current average of all polls, with UKIP on 19 per cent.
As well as asking people how they would vote in a general election, we asked if they thought the following were “performing well or badly in their current jobs”:
David Cameron; George Osborne; Ed Miliband; Ed Balls; Michael Gove; Boris Johnson; Jeremy Hunt; Theresa May.
And we asked if people agreed or disagreed with the following statements:
1. Ed Miliband has handled the controversy surrounding trade union influence in the Labour Party well
2. Trade union members should pay membership fees to the Labour Party only if they individually choose to, rather than automatically be enrolled
3. If trade union influence in the Labour Party is reduced, working class people will find it harder to have their views represented in Parliament
4. Parliament is too unrepresentative of the UK population as a whole
5. I support the idea of ‘open primaries’ to select parliamentary candidates where everyone on the electoral register can take part
6. If forced to choose, I would prefer that parties receive money from trade unions than from wealthy individual donors
7. I am more optimistic about the direction of the country than I was a year ago
8. Andy Murray deserves a knighthood for winning Wimbledon
I shall post the results here this evening. The full tables will be on the ComRes website.Tagged in: comres, opinion polls
