Lib Dem support drops to historic low

Lib Dem support drops to historic low
The Liberal Democrats' popularity has plummeted to its lowest level since April 1990, according to a new Ipsos MORI poll.

The nationwide Political Monitor survey found the Lib Dems down one point to seven per cent when people were asked who they would back in a general election. Nigel Farage’s Ukip was two points ahead of the Lib Dems on nine per cent.

Gideon Skinner, head of political research at Ipsos MORI, said: "This is the second month in a row that we’ve seen the Liberal Democrats in fourth place, at their lowest for 23 years – while the other big political events of the month don’t seem to have changed support for the other parties."
