Lib Dem Support Plummets To 8%; Go On Dave Call A General Election
August 18th 2010 will mark the 100th day of the coalition government and to celebrate this wonderous event Sky News have commissioned a poll which makes grim reading for Little Nicky, St Vince of Fable and the Wind God Chris Huhne.
If there were to be a General Election tomorrow then St Vince and the Wind God would be signing on the day afterwards.
A poll on June 28th had the Lib Dems on 16%, in less than 2 months the Lib Dem support has fallen 50%
Asked how they would vote if there was another General Election tomorrow, 43% would back the Conservatives, 24% would vote Labour and 8% would support the Liberal Democrats.
So far, 44% believe the coalition has done a good job, while 33% say it has performed badly. More than a fifth (22%) do not feel strongly either way.
The results of the survey bring bad news for Nick Clegg who has seen support for his party rapidly decline.
More than half of his own supporters believe the decision to join a coalition with the Conservatives has been a bad thing for the party and more than 40% of Lib Dem voters said they do not plan to vote for them again as a result.
In contrast, the Conservatives would win an outright majority in the House of Commons if there was another General Election tomorrow.
Tory supporters think the coalition has been good for the party on the whole, with 45% agreeing and 24% against.
Voters overall think David Cameron has done a good job as Prime Minister – 54% say he has done very or quite well while 31% believe he has done badly. His deputy, Mr Clegg, does not fare as well, with just 34% saying he is doing well and 36% disagreeing. Sky News
If only Dave had the balls of Maggie Thatcher and the political will he would call a General Election, with a leaderless and inward looking Labour party, and with 43% poll approval Cameron would win a proper working majority and there would be a real Conservative Government, without Libtards like the Wind God in minsterial posts.
