Britain’s Labour Party has been backed up to a double-digit poll lead since the general election in 2010, being put 11 points ahead of the Conservatives, hit by a backlash after last month's budget.


According to a new YouGov poll conducted for The Sun, Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats with support levels of 32 percent and 8 percent respectively, were put behind the Labour's 43 percent support.

YouGov’s survey of 1,783 British adults on April 15 and 16, also found the Liberal Democrats, which had nearly a quarter of the vote at the last election, have been overtaken for the first time by the UK Independence Party (UKIP) with 9 percent support.

Furthermore, a second poll carried out by Populus in The Times showed ED Miliband’s Labour party has extended its lead over the Tories to nine points.

According to the research, support for Labour has climbed by 4 points to 42 percent over the past month, while that for the Tories has fallen one point to 33 percent. In addition, the Liberal Democrats’ 11 percent support has not changed.

Populus’ survey of 1,003 people interviewed by telephone between April 13 and 15 also found that 61 percent of voters felt the coalition government was doing "badly", which is up from 51percent in September.
