Four out of 10 voters could still be floating

Published 05/05/2010 | 03:14

Almost four-in-10 people could still change their mind about how they will vote in tomorrow's General Election, according to a new survey.

The latest ComRes poll suggests that the UK contest is still wide open because 38% of people said it was “quite possible” they would change their mind by tomorrow, while 56% said it was not. The Liberal Democrat vote appeared to be the most “soft”, with 41% of those intending to back the party saying they might switch, compared to 34% of Labour supporters and 32% of Tory supporters.

Younger people are more likely to be “up for grabs”; and ComRes also found that an estimated 2.4m people who are certain to vote are still deciding who to support.

ComRes telephoned 1,024 UK adults between 2-3 May 2010.
