Voting intentions poll shows CON 30% (+1), LAB 44% (+2), LD 8% (+1), UKIP 7% (-3), OTHER 11% (nc)
TNS BMRB’s latest poll has found the Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats all gaining support this week, with the overall Labour lead over the Conservatives standing at 14 points.
The increase in support for these parties comes largely at the expense of UKIP, who after a record 10 per cent vote share last week have fallen back to 7 per cent, just behind the Liberal Democrats.
With conference season now over, despite a few early signs of movement there does not appear to have been any sustained impact upon the polling positions of the major parties.
