Tories and Lib Dems suffer loss at the polls on 100th day of Coalition


On the 100th day of the Con-Lib alliance government, both the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats have decreased poll ratings.

The latest survey, carried out by ICM, shows support for the Liberal Democrats has slipped to just 18% – its lowest this year.

The Tories have come out only marginally better, going down one to 37% – the same figure as Labour.

This will be a devastating blow to PM David Cameron as it is the first time in three years that the Tories have not overtaken Labour in this poll.

Just over a thousand adults from across the nation were interviewed for the survey and findings show 46% of participants think the Coalition government is doing a “good job” of running the country, compared to 36% who thought they were doing a “bad job”.

These are probably not the results Cameron expected, although the 10-point margin is down from a 23-point one two months ago.
