ComRes shows the "Don't Knows" increasingly transferring their support to No2AV

By Jonathan Isaby

Tomorrow's Independent on Sunday and Sunday Mirror both carry the latest ComRes poll on the AV referendum which demonstrates that those who were Don't Knows at the beginning of the year and now have an opinion have virtually all tranferred their support to the No campaign.

ComRes asked the official question, as it will appear on the ballot paper on May 5th:

At present, the UK uses the “first past the post” system to elect MPs to the House of Commons. Should the “alternative vote” system be used instead?

The results over the last four months have been as follows:

                                Jan     Feb     Mar     Now
Yes                            36%    40%    34%    37%
No                            30%    30%    37%    43%
Don't know                34%    30%    28%    21%

The figures have been adjusted to take into account people's likelihood to turn out to vote.
