New Ipsos MORI Poll – Miliband Not Fit to be PM Says Two Thirds
There is a new Ipsos MORI poll reported today in the London Evening Standard showing the Conservatives significantly closing the gap on Labour:
Conservative 29% (up 2%)
Labour 38% (down 2%)
Lib Dem 10% ( down 1%)
UKIP 15% (up 2%)
This poll is very much in line with other recent polls showing the Conservatives up and Labour at or below 40%. 38% is Labour’s lowest rating for a year with MORI.
Most interesting however is the public opinion of the Labour leader’s fitness to be Prime Minister. A mere 24% think that Ed Miliband is fit to be Prime Minister with 66% disagreeing. Oddly, Ed Miliband has the highest net satisfaction rating of the three main party leaders, with a rating of -16% compared with David Cameron’s -28% and Nick Clegg’s rock bottom -44%. Only Nigel Farage has a positive net rating, at +8% but it is very easy to be popular when you are not in government and have not been.
Ipsos MORI interviewed a representative sample of 1,010 aged 18+ across Great Britain. Interviews were conducted by telephone 13-16 Apr 2013.
