British Labour Party Loses Polls' Lead

The ComRes's poll for The Independent newspaper was carried out at a time when Labour party chief, Ed Miliband is doing 'what he can' to make an impact with the public.

The poll shows Labour has lost its lead over the Tories for the first time in seven months, running neck and neck with the Tories following a turbulent political month.

The month was turbulent because the Labour party was trounced in elections to the Scottish Parliament and recorded a mixed performance in contests for English councils.

The poll also found that support for the Tories has fallen by one point to 37 percent.

This is while the Liberal Democratic party is witnessing support recovery after its recent dramatic collapse in popularity. Support for the Lib Dems is also up by one point to 12 percent.

Support for other parties, including the SNP, Ukip and the Greens, is up by two points to 14 percent.

Labour was leading the poll index by nine points after the Chancellor, George Osborne, set out plans for spending cuts in the autumn, but it is losing supporters since then.
