London: Joining the Conservative Party to
form the ruling coalition has cost the Liberal Democrats half
the support it had during the May 6 elections, an opinion poll
published on Sunday said.

The Liberal Democrats registered a 12 per cent support
in the latest opinion poll, against the 24 per cent support it
had in the election, according to a YouGov poll for the Sunday
Times.

The poll also showed dwindling support for Liberal
Democrats leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, whose
personal satisfaction rating had collapsed to just eight
points, compared with 72 points at one stage during the
election campaign.

In contrast, the poll also showed that Prime Minister
David Cameron`s Conservative Party had fared far better than
his coalition partners and enjoyed 42 percent of support, who
was five points more than what the party got at the election.

The opinion poll also registsred a gain of eight
points to 38 per cent for the Labour party, which lost power
after 13 years in power.
