The gap between the indicators of the popularity of the tories and labour for a week halved
LONDON, may 21. /Offset. TASS Maxim Ryzhkov/. The gap between levels of public support in the UK the ruling Conservative party and opposition labour over the last week has halved from 18 to 9 per cent.
This is evidenced by the results of the survey, more than 1.9 million voters, held on may 18-19, the sociological service YouGov commissioned by the newspaper The Sunday Times.
According to his results, a rating of support for the tories now stands at 44%, labour — 35%.
The paper relates such a significant change in public opinion, negative reaction of voters to the provisions of the election Manifesto of the tories, signalling a weakening in the level of social protection of older Britons. The main opposition has managed to successfully take advantage of this fact and in the Wake of criticism raised its rating.
Indicators of the popularity of the “Liberal Democrats” and the Party United Kingdom independence (UKIP) was left with last week, unchanged 9% and 3%.
The early General elections in the UK will be held June 8.
