Ken Favourite To Beat Boris - LBC Exclusive Poll
Monday 23rd January 2012
An LBC 97.3 poll of Londoners voting intentions suggests Ken Livingstone is now favourite to win the mayoral election
The Labour candidate has 51% of the vote to Boris Johnson' 49% after second preference votes are allocated.
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 Cameron’s 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.
