Lib Dems Support In Free Fall

Closer examination of last week's You Gov data reveals some startling information for the Lib Dems.

Of those who voted Lib Dem at the 2010 General Election, it now seems that only 33% would still vote for Nick Clegg's Lib Dems.

A whopping 41% of those former Lib Dem supporters would now vote Labour, 11% would vote Tory and 15% would vote for other parties including UKIP and the Greens.

These are current voting intentions, so any belief by the Lib Dems that we'd forget about their U-turn on tution fees or forgive their support for propping up the Tory-led coalition seems widely misplaced.

Expect increasingly desperate claims from the local Lib Dems in Redlands and elsewhere over the coming weeks and months.
