In addition to our usual voting intention question, we asked our tracking questions about David Cameron and Ed Miliband’s leadership.
After the speech by Chris Bryant, Labour’s immigration spokesman, this week, we also asked if people agreed or disagreed with a set of statements about immigration and the free movement of workers throughout the European Union:
All citizens of other European Union countries should have the right to live and work in the United Kingdom
It is good for Britain that people from the rest of the EU are encouraged to come to work here
It is wrong for firms to recruit from overseas while a million young people in Britain are unemployed
Businesses cannot be blamed for hiring foreign workers because too many British workers are lazy
British firms should be able to give British citizens priority over other EU citizens when hiring new workers, even if this means the UK would have to leave the EU
Ed Miliband is right to accept that the last Labour government made major mistakes on immigration
Finally, in advance of the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech on 28 August, we asked how the following people compared with King as inspirational speakers: Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Winston Churchill, Boris Johnson, John F Kennedy, Barack Obama, Margaret Thatcher.
I will post the results here tonight. The full tables will be on the ComRes website.Tagged in: comres, opinion polls
