Further Description

Savanta ComRes asked voters their standard voting intention question which found the Tory lead had extended from 8% to 16% in the space of just ten days.  They then asked how people would vote if each of the main Labour leadership contenders were leading the Party.

The results show Alan Johnson to be the only candidate (including Gordon Brown) who would deny the Tories an overall majority:
