An opinion poll for The Sunday Telegraph puts the Tories 17% ahead. That's an increased lead of 4% and would give the Conservatives a parliamentary majority of 114 according to UK Polling Report's Swing Calculator.
The poll is by a new entity called Marketing Sciences Ltd. I understand that it is a sister company to ICM. The changes in the graphic are therefore compared with the most recent ICM poll. I have not put the numbers into the ConHome Poll of Polls, however, because I don't know if Marketing Sciences will be polling regularly.
Other poll findings:
- Voters think that Brown is MORE likely to resort to spin than Tony Blair. Quite something!
- 36% of voters blame Brown for presiding over a dirty tricks culture in Downing Street but a larger proportion, 50% do not.
- 75% of voters say dumping Brown will make no difference to how they would vote. Of those for whom it might make a difference 13% say it would make them less likely to support Labour and 11% more likely.
