First Poll Results - Post Sleaze

Conservative - 43% -1
Labour - 26% -5
Lib Dems - 21 +3

This poll was taken Wednesday and Thursday so includes SmearGate and police assaults backlash, but not Damien Green and police manslaughter charges being raised.

That's quite a drop, but a move from Labour to the Lib Dems, which would reflect left wing core voters like Alice Mahon who said:
“I can no longer be a member of a party that at the leadership level has betrayed many of the values and principles that inspired me as a teenager to join.”
If they keep going at this rate, Labour will become the third party and that's the perfect warning shot that parliament needs. Not only to generate the shock we need to send them for change and accountably, but Lib Dems in opposition would be a good balance against the Tories to govern from. The next poll will be interesting.
