What's the real level of Lib Dem support?
Recent opinion polls are a bit contradictory.
The two at the weekend both had the Tories in about the same place (low to mid 40s) but online pollster YouGov found 32% support for Labour and just 14% for the Lib Dems, whilst phone pollster ComRes had us on a derisory 25% and the LDs on 22%.
The council by-election results I report every Friday are not picking up an LD surge, but that could be because they are a fairly random sample (though they tracked the Brown first bounce in summer and early autumn 2007 fairly closely, and the subsequent fall in Labour support).
Is anyone (perhaps Tories would be objective third party witnesses as this is about the ratio between Labour and LD support?) picking up the LD high support shown by ComRes in their local canvassing?
