London, 9 April 2014 - The latest TNS voting intention poll shows that the forthcoming European elections are turning into a two horse race. Labour are currently on top with 30%, however, UKIP are in a close second only one point behind.

Labour and UKIP have established a clear lead over all of the other parties, with the Conservatives in third place with 21% of support. The Liberal Democrats are in a distant fourth place with only 9% of people intending to vote for them.



Notes to editors:

TNS interviewed a representative sample of 1,193 people between 3rd – 7th April 2014.

All interviews were conducted as online self-completion. The data is weighted to match population totals for age, sex, social grade, working status, presence of children, 2010 voting patterns and region.

The voting intention figures have been filtered to show the results for those that would “definitely vote” in the European elections and those that “preferred not to say” who they would vote for have been excluded from the results.

The full data tables are available here.
