A YouGov poll for ITV Wales has shown the Liberal Democrats struggling to match the Communist Party in the North Wales region for next May's National Assembly of Wales elections.

The poll, conducted on December 20-22, showed both parties tied on 3 per cent, behind Plaid Cymru on 30 per cent and Labour and the Tories on 28 per cent each. The BNP have slumped to 0 per cent, despite once having national full-time organisers, premises and local councillors in the region.
 
In the 2007 Welsh Assembly elections, the Lib Dems won 8 per cent of the North Wales regional votes - enough to give them an assembly seat - while the the BNP scored 5 per cent and the Communists less than half of 1 per cent.
 
'The new poll result is based on a sample of 213 electors, so we are not yet packing our bags for Cardiff Bay', Communist Party Welsh secretary Rick Newnham declared.
 
'But the poll shows that support for the Lib Dems has dropped like a stone across Wales, following their betrayal of anti-Tory electors in general and students in particular'.
 
Mr Newnham welcomed another finding of the YouGov/ITV Wales poll, which showed the Communist Party gaining the support of 2 per cent of voters in the 18-34 age group across Wales. He revealed that the party is likely to contest all five Welsh regions in the National Assembly elections next May.
 
'Despite our limited resources, we want to give every elector in Wales the opportunity to vote for public services, jobs, a massive public sector housebuilding programme and extra investment in green energy and public transport - to be paid for by taxing the banks, the monopolies and the super-rich', he announced.
 
The YouGov/ITV Wales poll showed Labour ahead with more than 40 per cent support in both the constituency and the regional 'top-up' sections, as much as the Tories and Plaid Cymru combined, with the Lib Dems trailing badly in fourth place with 9 per cent.   END
