There are many limitations of the left-right spectrum, but one thing this polling result shows – as did previous similar ones covered by Stephen Tall – is that the political issue for the Liberal Democrats is the public’s views on factors such as competence, consistency and strength rather than the party being seen as too left or too right wing.
