John Leonard has kindly pointed out that there’s an Ipsos-MORI poll which puts the Conservatives on 48% and Labour on 24%. It’s mentioned by The Telegraph. More as we get it.
21 August 12.30pm Update:
The results of the Ipsos-MORI poll have been confirmed with the release of the figures today:
Liberal Democrats 16%
Sky News is reporting
this as Labour’s lowest rating by the pollster since it began its
records in 1977. If repeated on a uniform national swing at the next
election, Electoral Calculus reports Labour and the Liberal Democrats would lose more than half their seats, and the Conservative majority would be 272.
58% agreed that the Conservatives are ready for office, with narrow
leads on education, housing and the environment and a 15% lead on the
economy. 75% are dissatisfied with Gordon Brown’s performance.
