A poll issued today by IPSOS Mori has reported that the Conservatives have taken their largest ever lead in the question “which party has the best team of leaders to deal with the country’s problems?” with the Conservatives taking a 27 point lead.
A spokesman for IPSOS Mori said:
“Labour starts 2016 with big challenges ahead, being the furthest behind the Conservatives on perceptions of unity and leadership team since we started asking the question. The last time one of the big two was this far behind was in May 2001, when William Hague’s Conservatives were trailing Tony Blair’s New Labour. Meanwhile, the British public are as opposed to unilateral disarmament today as they were when we were asking them 30 years ago”.
