Comment from Deborah Turness, Editor of ITV News:

 

“Once again our instant poll with ComRes gave us a unique snapshot of voter opinion. The sample was huge and the view from the sofa clear. Thanks to this pioneering poll News at Ten was the only news programme able to truly, immediately gauge reaction to the debate.”

 

Comment from Andrew Hawkins, ComRes Chairman:

 

 “This was a much closer fight, and it was noticeable how each of the leaders had developed their lines of defence and attack better since last week.  There was more proper debate this week, more drama and better engagement with both each other and with the issues.”
