Further poll woe for Cameron: Tory voters favour electoral reform referendum | Left Foot Forward.

From Left Foot Forward:

Following the shrinking of his poll lead to just two points yesterday, David Cameron has come under further poll pressure – this time from Conservative voters. A YouGov/Vote For A Change survey has found that more Tory voters believe Cameron should allow a referendum on voting reform than hold up the Bill in the Lords, by 45:32.

The survey also revealed only 16 per cent of the public as a whole thought Cameron was right to hold up the bill’s passage, with only 8 per cent of Labour and Lib Dem voters opposed to a referendum.

The campaign for PR has been driven rather quietly, and very effectively from behind the scenes by my colleague in Finance for the Future, Colin Hines.

Good work Colin. I never thought he'd get reform. I now think I was wrong.
