Tories ahead despite NHS row.

Summary: An ICM poll gives the Conservatives a commanding 16 point lead over Labour.

Labour's hopes of a summer fightback fuelled by Tory splits over the NHS have been dashed.

An ICM poll published in The Guardian gives the Conservatives a commanding 16 point lead over Labour.

The survey - carried out since Tory MEP Daniel Hannan's attack on the NHS on US television - shows little damage has been done to David Cameron's party.

The Tory leader was forced to slap down the high-profile MEP over his comments that the NHS was a "60-year mistake".

Nearly half of those surveyed think healthcare would be better under a Tory government.

The Liberal Democrats are on 19 per cent.
