Electoral arithmetic

According to a new ComRes poll, which confirms recent trends, the Tories are down to a five point lead. But the most interesting part of the poll is this: only 28% of voters say they know what the Tories stand for, and approve of it; 37% of voters intend to vote for the Tories. 9% of voters will back the Tories either without knowing what they stand for, or while disapproving of what they stand for.
