UKIP's European Election campaign is on course to deliver a gigantic political earthquake according to two new polls out today.
The first from TNS-BMRB shows UKIP in first place with 36%. A ComRes poll has UKIP on 38%, an 11% lead over Labour and 20% ahead of the Conservatives.
Liberal Democrats 10%
Liberal Democrats: 8%
UKIP Director of Communications Patrick O'Flynn said: "These two latest polls chime with what we are picking up on the doorsteps. People are sick of the pro-Brussels political establishment and are flocking to UKIP for an alternative.
“In particular they want Britain to take back control of its borders and impose immigration controls with regard to other EU countries. And they really do not like seeing that view described as racist.
“There is no room for complacency at all and everyone at UKIP will be working flat out right up until May 22 to deliver the best possible result in the European and local elections.
“But there is no doubt that the signs are very promising for us just now and morale is extremely high. Our message to all UKIP members is to keep getting out on the campaign trail and help us make political history.”
