Ukip has drawn level with the Lib Dems for the first time since 2003, indicating a possible drop in support for Nigel Farage’s anti-EU party.

A ComRes poll shows the Lib Dems up three points today to 12 per cent – the same as Ukip.

Support for The Conservatives was still the most at 34 per cent, with Labour not far behind on 33 per cent.

The Green Party trailed behind with just 4 per cent of the vote, while 6 per cent said they would support ‘other’ parties.

The latest polls will make things difficult for Nigel Farage, who continues to insist support has ‘rallied’ in the last few weeks after the debates.

While support for the Tories and Labour is very close, people still appear to trust the Conservatives with the economy ahead of a government run by Ed Miliband and Ed Balls.

The telephone poll was commissioned by ITV News and the Daily Mail.
