THERE’S been a three point swing in support directly from the Liberals to the Tories, according to today’s ICM poll in The Guardian. It leaves the Tories with a 15-point lead over us.
The figures for each of the parties are (with the change since last month in brackets):
- Conservative 45 (+3)
- Labour 30 (no change)
- LibDems 18 (-3).
If that were repeated in a general election, it would leave Cameron with a majority of just over 100. So much for the optimism generated by The Telegraph’s poll on Wednesday.
