Voters still don't trust Labour

Despite a 'cost of living' campaign that resonates strongly with the public, Labour still aren't trusted on the economy, a ComRes poll for the Sunday Indie shows. Headline vote shares are: 

Labour 35%
Conservative 32%
UKIP 16%
LibDem 9%

On the question of which party would keep the economy growing, Conservatives lead Labour by 40% to 26%; 55% support the Tory stance on dole bludgers compared to soft Labour's 16% and Cameron maintains a 14% lead over Miliband in popularity.At this stage in the electoral cycle, Labour's poll share is dire.

If UKIP can keep robbing Labour's traditional aspirational working class voters - the C2s - it will leave Miliband with a shrunken core of Guardianista middle class luvvies and inner city immigrants. The thought of Farage speaking at the Trades Union Congress may be a novel one, but not one to be dismissed...

There problems are multiple. I think their only reason for the general level pegging is that some people are working under a slightly deluded view that Labour will not hit them if they come to power once they are forced to tackle our financial predicament.

How gratifying to see the patronising Janus-faced, pro-EU LibDems languishing on 9%.

How depressing that 67% of those polled still think that Labour or the Conservatives deserve another shot at wrecking the country.

I'm fed up with the lot of mainstream politicians. they have screwed us once too often. I'm going balls out for UKIP now. Partly as a protest and partly for a breath of fresh air. After all, it's the civil service that turns the engine wheels, the pols are supposed to pick the course of the ship. So whining that they have no experience is irrelevant.

The Tories took us into Europe, they are despite what they say, still the party of Europe.
Zanu Labour, scum sucking cultural Marxists with a solid black core of ideologues winding up their useful idiots - the twatterati. That venal little scrote Ed Miliband leads them - who could possibly countenance voting for that millionaire communist shitehawk?

Nick Clegg's crew are, is looking for a shagging, Labour will be their boys.

Vote for the British political class? Insha Allah - you deserve what you will get.

Quality rant that.

England is being subsumed into a European superstate. A demise authored by the Right.

The English will go from majority to minority before the end of this century. A demise authored by the Left.

We suffered pestilence and starved and fought wars and worked the land and filled the factories and finally, when we helped defeat the greatest war machine the world had ever seen, the politicians give it all away.

Vote for the LibLabCon? I'd rather saw my own head off.

Agree. I couldn't have said it better.

Shouldn't the heading be:
"Voters still don't trust $POLITICIANS" ??
