Results of a door to door survey in the Hamilton Drive part of Acomb have seen Labour fall to their lowest ever level of support.
Asked which party they would support if there were a Council election tomorrow, only 3% said they would vote Labour.
The Conservatives and UKIP were vying for second place behind the Liberal Democrats who were favored by 40%
The poor Labour showing is put down to problems with the introduction of new waste collection arrangements and threats to reduce the amount of ice clearance undertaken in the neighbourhood.
200 homes in the area were visited by surveyors.
