More evidence of a Lib Dem poll surge

Text settings

There's another poll putting the Lib Dems in second place now, Com Res has them up eight to 29, the Tories down four to 31 and Labour down two to 27. An ICM poll for the Sunday Telegraph has the Lib Dems up 7 to 27. The Tories are on 34, down 3,  and Labour are down two to 29. Interestingly, the paper is reporting that most of the polling was carried out before the debate--so ICM's numbers may well under-estimate the Lib Dem's current strength.


Again, we will have to wait a few more days to see whether this Lib Dem surge is solid. But there's no doubt that something interesting is going on.
