David Cameron Comes Out On Top Of Polls In British Gen. Election
May 2, 2010
While the Liberal Democrats managed to gain support after the first televised debate, they have since found their support dropping significantly.
The Labour, on the other hand, have managed to rally a bit more with a one point raise. But the result is a serious slow-down after Gordon Brown’s highly publicized gaffe, where he called a woman a ‘bigot’ without realizing his mic was still on.
But David Cameron and the Conservatives saw a sharp raise in popularity this week, putting them ahead in potential votes by 36%.
Labour has 29%, and Lib Dems have 27%.
However, the major concern is that a hung parliament – an occurrence in which there is no party majority – is still set to be the end result.
According to The Sunday Telegraph, an ICM poll showed that most voters (52%) thought this would be a horrible outcome for Britain.
