Recent figures published by YouGov show the Tories and Labour to be neck-and-neck for the first time in 18 months. This will no doubt cause grave concern for Labour HQ, following the Labour conference. Additional polls carried out by ComRes prior to the Labour conference, saw some 78% of respondents believing Miliband was an unlikely election winner, while 72% believe Miliband should be dropped from the Labour leadership altogether. Let’s see if Conservative conference has much of an effect on the current trends.
Mini view: Next week, Cameron has an opportunity to put Ed and Balls out of their misery. He must stick to a clear, concise, conservative message and show the British people that the Conservatives are ready to govern alone as the majority party. People are confused as to what Labour actually stands for. The Liberal Democrats (if their conference was anything to go by) have demonstrated how out of touch they are with the needs of the general public. UKIP are hovering around a 12% national average and are likely to cause the Conservatives some discomfort. Cameron must therefore present the Conservatives as the party both in-touch with the people and the only party dedicated to offering a referendum on Europe and implementing firm but just immigration policies- without the craziness.
