The Conservatives have continued the trend of a small but consistent lead over Labour in a new poll while the Lib Dems saw their support drop.

The party's popularity rose to 36% in the latest ComRes telephone poll for ITV News and the Daily Mail - up two points, while Labour dropped one to 32%.

However with 14 days to go until the election, the findings still leave them short of a majority of seats in the Commons.

Despite seeing a drop of two points to 10%, Ukip are marginally ahead of the Lib Dems, who dropped four points to 8%. The Greens remained relatively unchanged on 5% (up one point).

ITV News election analyst Colin Rallings forecast the Conservatives would still be the largest party in Parliament after adjusting the poll results for England and Wales and combining them with a recent Scottish poll of polls for the Scotland figures.

With support dipping for the Lib Dems, the poll found two in five (41%) of those who voted for the party in 2010 would not consider voting for them again in this election.

However, a quarter (25%) of both Conservative and Labour voters said they would consider voting Lib Dem.

Meanwhile the poll found Conservative voters are almost twice as likely (27%) as Labour (14%) and Lib Dem (15%) voters to say that they would consider voting for UKIP.
