Media Alert: Labour hold 12 point lead as Lib Dems fall 3 points in their worst poll of 2012
Voting intentions poll shows CON 31% (+1), LAB 43% (+2), LD 9% (-3), OTHER 17% (nc)
Labour’s lead over the Conservatives increases marginally to 12 points in TNS BMRB’s latest poll but there is bad news for the Liberal Democrats a week before their annual conference in Brighton as they record their lowest poll position since November 2011.
Individual polls should not be viewed in isolation but it will be interesting to see if this is a mere blip or the start of a worrying downward trend.
