Poll Confirms Disquiet Amongst Lib Dem Grassroots Over Coalition

The latest opinion polls confirms what many have been saying since the formation of the Coalition between the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats - that many supporters would not have backed the party if they had known they would have joined forces with the Tories in the event of a Hung Parliament.

The Liberal Democrats have always been more closely aligned with Labour so this is not surprising.

It is all very well for former leader Lord Ashdown to say that the Coalition is not a bad thing.  He is not going to be affected by all the cuts in public services that will hit millions of ordinary people on modest incomes.

This survey will definitely not be the last to produce these findings.
