|ComRes: ITV News/Independent||Apr 11||Apr 8|
|LAB to CON swing from 2005||5%||5%|
The Independent has teamed up with ITV news to do two general election polls a week – the first of which appears this evening.
The gap is the same as the last ComRes poll – the big difference being that both Labour and the Tories are down two each with Clegg’s party moving up four.
So a poll that’s giving the same broad picture as the others.
And it’s the same broad message from YouGov
|YG daily poll – The Sun||Apr 12||Apr 11|
|LAB to CON swing from 2005||4.5%||4.5%|
The big feature of the daily poll is the very low figure for others which is sharply down to just 8% – or exactly what it was at the 2005 election. It could be that the pollster has picked up a key trend here – a squeeze on other parties as the battle is framed in terms of the big boys.
