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…

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.
