    Labour in the main benefits from Lib Dems downturn in polls

    This report from the Independent appears to show that although both Labour and the Tories benefit from the collapse of the Lib Dem vote, Labour is benefitting the most:

    Until now, it has been assumed that the turmoil in the Liberal Democrats since the resignation of Charles Kennedy would mainly benefit the Tories. The Cabinet was told this month that two out of three voters deserting the Liberal Democrats are switching to the Tories, and Labour fears a third party collapse could severely harm its prospects at the next election. The weighted average of this month's polls by ICM, MORI, ICM and Populus puts Labour on 39 per cent (up four points on last month), the Tories on 38 per cent (up one point) and the Liberal Democrats on 16 per cent (down four points).
