Labour’s 22% Strategy

Ed Miliband was famously accused of seeking the support of just 35% of voters, a modest target of which he fell 5 points short. Well, judging by today’s ComRes poll, the best the next Labour leader can hope for is 22%:

Meanwhile the Tories are on 42%, their highest poll rating for 5 years. Come back, Ed, all is forgiven…

The Mirror have got hold of some more private Labour polling:

Burnham slips to third place, Corbyn still well out in front…

UPDATE:  Kendall camp responds:

“So-called “private polls” have no credibility and people should take no notice of them. If people have a real poll produced by a BPC member they should release it, rather than peddling questionable numbers”

Greek Poll Has “No” Side Ahead

greek-no

Greece looks likely to reject the creditors’ bailout according to the latest poll published today. Asked how they would vote in a referendum – assuming it goes ahead – 46% said they back the “no” vote, down from 57%, with “yes” up to 37% from 30%. Undecideds at 17% may yet say “yes” to the austerity status quo…

Ipsos Mori: Stewart Lewis Polling Surprisingly Well

stewart-lewisJust to see if the British public is paying attention pollsters Ipsos Mori added in a fake name to the leadership race survey. “Stewart Lewis” is giving Jeremy Corbyn a run for his money and the dummy name polls better amongst Labour supporters than the general public. This supports Guido’s long held view that Labour supporters are less informed and more stupid than the rest of us… 

Poll Finds Pollsters Less Trusted Than Bankers

pollster-poll

This poll from PLMR and ComRes reveals of 17% of people trust pollsters, whilst 18% trust bankers. That seems a very small difference well within the margin of error. In fact did no one at PLMR see the paradox in asking pollsters to find out how much pollsters are trusted? Politician is still by far the least trusted profession. Which shows people ain’t stupid…

Quote of the Day

Charles Clarke says Cameron is the most successful PM for over a century…

“Under Margaret Thatcher the Conservatives gained 99 seats. They lost 211 under John Major, gained one under William Hague, quickly and wisely got rid of Ian Duncan-Smith, gained 32 under Michael Howard and have so far gained 133 under David Cameron who, to the great surprise of many (including senior Conservatives), has turned out to be the most electorally successful Tory leader since 1900.”
