…That’s perhaps the most interesting finding from two opinion polls that appear tomorrow.
BPIX has the Conservatives on 40% (-1%) and Labour on 35% (-2%). No LibDem number in the MoS piece. Because of BPIX’s irregular pubblication we don’t include it within ConservativeHome’s Poll of Polls but it is a poll that generally echoes YouGov’s findings. BPIX have (imo) a pretty worthless question about the parties’ standing if Blair was still PM. For the record they’d both be on 37%.
Of those who express an opinion… most voters told BPIX that Gordon Brown is more incompetent than John Major and that Alistair Darling is a worse Chancellor than Norman Lamont.
A Creston poll (related to ICM according to Anthony Wells (so it must be true!)) for the News of the World finds that 49% want Alistair Darling to resign. The poll also finds the Tories and Labour level on 38%. Do I believe that? No!
More in the morning…
