Advisers back Tories as election looms

A poll of more than 1,200 Money Marketing readers has found overwhelming support for the Conservaties, with distant rivals being Ukip.

Some 52 per cent of those polled said they would vote Conservative, while 15.5 per cent pledged their backing to Nigel Farage’s party.

The figures represent a marked contrast to national polls where the Conservatives are neck and neck with Labour.

YouGov’s latest polling figures have Labour leading by 1 per cent, while the BBC’s poll of polls has the two parties tied at 34 per cent each.

Labout has won the support of 12.1 per cent of advisers, while the Liberal Democrats trailed behind at 7.1 per cent.

Natalie Bennett’s Green party were the least popular named party, gathering just 5 per cent of the total vote.

There is one comment at the moment, we would love to hear your opinion too.

  1. It seems strange that Advisers would ” back ” David Cameron or the Tries – after they have Destroyed their businesses – and caused the destruction of so many employees, jobs !
