Poll shows voters think of Tories as sleazy

Click to follow
Nearly two-thirds of voters say the Tories give the impression of being 'sleazy and disreputable', according to a Gallup poll in the Daily Telegraph today. The finding was tempered by a marginal improvement in the Conservatives' rating generally - but they still lag 19.5 percentage points behind Labour (45.5 per cent).

Fifty per cent believed leading party figures did not have high standards in financial dealings. The findings were taken on the last six days of last month from 1,085 electors.
