Voting intentions poll shows LAB 35%, CON 29%, UKIP 23%, LIB DEM 6%, OTHER 8%

A new TNS voting intentions poll shows Labour would get 35% of the vote in a General Election – 6 percentage points ahead of the Conservative Party (29%).

Support for UKIP is high (23%) following their success at the European Elections. UKIP’s challenge may be sustaining this support as a General Election approaches and issues other than Europe become part of the political debate.

The Liberal Democrats have a 6% share, similar to the vote they achieved in the recent European Elections, which would place them in a distant fourth place at a General Election.
