The Final Polls: Labour on 30% With Ashcroft

Tomorrow is the big day for most pollsters, with seven companies releasing their final numbers before the election. Today it is the turn of Populus and Lord Ashcroft:

Populus: CON 34, LAB 34, LD 10, UKIP 13, GREEN 5

Ashcroft: CON 32, LAB 30, LD 11, UKIP 12, GREEN 7

The last time we’ll hear Lord A tell us “it’s a snapshot not a predicition” before polling day…

Final Polls of the Season

Mike Smithson has put together a list of the final polls in the run up to Thursday. The exit poll will be released on the stroke of ten, Thursday night. It’s a group effort from BBC/ITV News/Sky News and the pollsters, and was spot on in 2010…

Labour Back Ahead With Survation

Weird how this is the only poll showing Labour gaining rather than losing five points in the last week…

ComRes Election Poem

ComRes have for some reason commissioned a special election poem:

I PREFER DEMOCRACY
 
You can run a land with armies
You can rule a sea with boats
But I prefer democracy
Where you run a land with votes.
 
You can run a land with bullets
You can crush dissent with sticks 
But I prefer democracy
Where you run a land with ticks.
 
You can run a land with slogans
You can dominate with voice  
But I prefer democracy
Where you run a land with choice.
 
You can run a land with torture
You can keep control with fights
But I prefer democracy
Where you run a land with rights.
 
You can run a land with freedom
You can find a people’s heart
But if this is democracy
You have to play your part.
 
You can run a land that dances
You can run a land that rocks
By voting for democracy
With your cross inside a box.
 
Steve Turner 2015

Kill Guido now.

Labour Smashed in Ipsos MORI Drill Down

The PM’s approval rating is on the up. According the Standard’s polling:

“The percentage who are satisfied with his performance has jumped from 39 to 46 in two weeks, giving him his best net rating since 2012, at -2, which is markedly better than his rivals.Mr Clegg’s net score has been boosted by 10 points to -21, while Mr Miliband has stayed level at -19.  Mr Farage is down a point to -25.”

And Labour get smashed in the other top jobs too:
  • Cameron/Miliband 52 to 31.
  • Osborne/Balls 47 to 34.
  • May/Cooper 45 to 36.
  • Clegg/Harman 42 to 39.
Only Dougie Alexander beats Philip Hammond, but he’s unlikely to even have a seat next week…

Ashcroft: Farage and Clegg Behind

Worth taking with a large pinch of salt because Ashcroft doesn’t prompt candidates’ names, but he has UKIP behind in South Thanet:

And Clegg trailing in Sheffield Hallam:

Guido has a considerable amount of money saying otherwise in Sheffield…

Out of the bubble prole Andy Burnham tells Mumsnet
