The latest monthly poll of voting intentions by Kantar Public shows that Labour have increased their lead over the Conservatives to three points, up from only one point last month.

The poll for December sees Labour earn 39% of the vote share, to the Conservatives 36%. Labour have seen a 2% rise and the Conservatives have seen no change, resulting in Labour’s biggest lead in Kantar Public polling since July. The Liberal Democrats slide to only 9%, down from 11% last month and their weakest showing since June.

Others continue to benefit from the uncertain times as their share of the vote has risen to 18%, up from 16%. This is Others greatest vote share since Kantar Public polling resumed in March.

Notes to editors:

Kantar Public interviewed a representative sample of 1,252 GB adults aged 18+ between 24/11/11 and 28/11/11.

All interviews were conducted as online self-completion. The data is weighted twice, firstly to match population totals for age, sex, social grade, working status, presence of children, 2005 voting patterns, constituency type, and region, and secondly, for voting intention questions only, an additional ‘likelihood-to-vote’ weight has been applied.
