Voting intentions poll shows CON 30% (+4), LAB 40% (-1), LD 7% (-1), UKIP 12% (-4), OTHER 10% (+1)
Following last week’s large Labour lead, which stood at 15 points, there has been a return to the more common polling picture of recent months with Labour registering a lead of 10 points in this week’s poll.
The five point drop in Labour’s lead stems largely from Conservative gains with the party up four points from last week. UKIP have fallen back slightly to 12% following their unusually strong performance last week, though they continue to lead the Liberal Democrats by five points.
The Liberal Democrats woes continue as they recorded their lowest vote share yet in a Kantar Public poll.
