UK 16 April 2010 Lib Dems up three to 24% in new national poll Poll bounce for Nick Clegg's party following first TV debate. Sign up for our weekly email * Print HTML Latest poll (ITV/ComRes): Conservatives 48 seats short of a majority. The ComRes figures released earlier today sent the Twittersphere into a frenzy but it turned out this was an unweighted poll of 4,000 people who watched the debate last night. ComRes have now released some new national figures, adjusted to take into account the 30 million or so voters who didn't watch the show. These are much less dramatic and show the Tories unchanged on 35 per cent, with Labour down one to 28 per cent and the Lib Dems up three to 24 per cent. So a decent bounce for the Lib Dems but nothing spectacular. If repeated at the election on a uniform swing, the figures would leave the Tories with 278 seats, Labour with 266 and the Lib Dems with 75.
