Cameron's EU speech cuts Labour's poll lead in half

The Prime Minister's speech on Europe has halved Labour's lead in the polls, according to a new ComRes survey for tomorrow's Independent on Sunday and Sunday Mirror.

David Cameron promised an in/out EU referendum in a speech in London last Wednesday.

Support for the Conservatives comes at the expense of Ukip, while Labour's rating remains unchanged at 39%.

  • Conservative 33% (+5 since December ComRes poll)
  • Labour 39% (no change)
  • Liberal Democrats 11% (+2)
  • Ukip 10% (-4)
  • Others 7% (-2)
