Poll: Ruling party far behind

A new poll shows Britain’s Conservative Party with a steady double-digit lead over Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s ruling Labour Party.

The Guardian/ICM poll said today the Conservatives would get 42 percent of the vote if it were held today, compared to 30 percent for Labour.

Brown must call a national election by mid-2010. His party has consistently trailed the Conservative Party led by David Cameron in recent months.

About two-thirds of all those polled also say Labour would do better with someone other than Brown as party leader.


ICM interviewed a random sample of just over 1,000 adults by telephone. The margin of error was plus or minus 3 percentage points.
