An ICM poll for The Sunday Telegraph finds that 17% of people think that Labour is more sleazy than the John Major government. Another 56% think it is as sleazy. 20% say that Tony Blair’s Labour is less sleazy.
70% said that Gordon Brown becoming Prime Minister would make no difference to the sleaziness of Labour.
By 47% to 23% people agreed that the Labour Party appeared to have been offering honours in return for loans.
These findings have not yet dented Labour’s overall opinion poll rating, however. The ICM poll for The Sunday Telegraph gives Labour a 37% to 33% lead.
There is slightly better news for David Cameron in The Sunday Times. A YouGov survey gives the Conservatives a 38% to 35% lead over Labour.
YouGov has Ming’s LibDems at 19%; 2% lower than ICM.
YouGov found that the situation hardly changed if Gordon Brown was leader. The Tories would move up to 39%, Labour to 37% and the LibDems down to 17%.
The Sunday Times’ survey also asked voters about sleaze and found very similar results to ICM. 53% of voters now regard Tony Blair as sleazy. 24% do not.
