ComRes Poll - Labour voters can't be Bovvered.

This latest ComRes poll shows that the LibDem gains of a fortnight ago were possibly just a blip in the data. The Conservatives maintain a election winning 16 point lead over Labour (majority of 122).

Mike Smithson over on Political Betting asks whether Labour are being damaged by supporters who aren't certain if they can be arsed to vote. Why 'bovver' going out to vote when a) You are likely to lose anyway, and b) you can sit on you backside watching Jeremy Kyle, smoking ciggies supplied by the taxpayer?

I really struggle to believe that there are still 28% of the British public who believe that Labour are worth voting for.

Who are these people?

Voter apathy will hurt Labour badly. The London mayoral elections showed what a mobilised Conservative voter base can do to an incumbent administration.

Polls such as these underestimate the Tory lead in effective terms. People who have had enough (a huge number and rising everyday) will be very motivated to get out and vote. I also think that many traditional Labour voters will stay at home. They can't face voting Tory, but don't want 5 more years of this.

The Tory figures can be relied on to be replicated on polling day. Labour could end up being in the low 20s.
