Support falling away for Lib Dems in their West-country Heartlands

Support for the Liberal Democrats has crashed in its South West heartlands since the general election, startling new polling data has shown. A 17% fall in support since the May 6 ballot underlines how voters in the region are deserting the party in the wake of the coalition with the Conservatives.

Labour has reaped the benefits, leap frogging the Lib Dems to become the second most popular party in the South West, a status it has not held in the region for decades, thanks to a 15% surge.

The findings will cause deep anxiety in Lib Dem ranks since the South West was the party’s power base long before leader Nick Clegg’s union with David Cameron.
