Mr Livingstone continues to get more support in inner London while Boris Johnson is more popular in the suburbs. But despite the results, when asked, most Londoners still expect Mr Johnson to win.

Boris struggles to win support among Londoners aged 18-44 while Ken struggles to gain the support of older people.

David Cameronís spending cuts seem to have a greater impact on putting people off voting for Boris than opinions of Ed Miliband do on Ken's chances.

Liberal Democrat candidate Brian Paddick is the most popular second preference choice for Londoners with 38 percent of the vote.
