If the General election were held tomorrow, which party would you vote for? 11/04 11/03 Labor 35 36 Conservative 32 38 Liberal Democrat 23 19 Other 10 6 Who would make the best Prime Minister? 11/04 11/03 Tony Blair 31 31 Michael Howard 19 27 Charles Kennedy 16 10 Don't Know 34 32With stagnant approval ratings in the 20's for many months now, it's doubtful that Blair will be running on his record, especially in regards to the miserable failure in Iraq. Howard seems to be fading as an alternative to Blair, with his numbers dropping steadily since he became the Torie leader about a year ago. Meanwhile, the Liberal Democrats are becoming a stronger and determined force; in fact they are targeting to take away Micheal Howard's seat in the next election. With the by-elections of 2004 having showed a surge toward Liberal Democrats, away from the Labour Party, 2005 could become a realignment year in the UK.
