Conservative members still want the Coalition to end shortly before the election (and are opposed to the idea of another afterwards)

Another set of not-much-change-from-last-month survey results – but we’ll note them down anyway, for completeness’ sake.

These are to do with the Coalition, its duration and whether there should be a repeat after the next election. First up, the question of when the current Coalition should end. Tory members responded much as they did last month, although there is a slight movement away from it ending this year or next, and towards it ending shortly before the general election:

And then the question of when the current Coalition will end:

And, finally, a question about the possibility of another Con-Lib Coalition after the election. Again, the responses are broadly similar to last month, although it’s noteworthy that there has been a seven percentage-point drop in those answering “I am completely opposed to such a Coalition”:

Over 2000 people responded to the survey, of which over 800 were Conservative Party members.
