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.
