Labour Maintain a Significant Lead Over The Conservatives, Who Remain In The Doldrums Tempered By Strong UKIP Support.

Headline Voting Intention (changes since May 25th)

Conservative: 25% (+1) Labour: 36% (+1) Liberal Democrat: 10% (nc) UKIP: 20% (-2) Others: 10% (+1)

Almost a quarter (24%) of Conservative 2010 voters are now planning to vote UKIP. Only 58% still definitely intend to vote Conservative, compared to 77% of Labour 2010 voters still planning to vote Labour.

Amongst older voters (aged 55+), support for UKIP is at 25%.
