|YouGov leadership ratings “…doing well/badly?â€||All %||CON voters||LAB voters||LD voters|
But Edward drops a couple of notches
The first leadership ratings numbers since the budget are out from YouGov and show positive movement for both coalition party leaders but Ed Miliband (the pollster has yet to refer to him as “Edward”) is down.
The above are the best figures for Cameron since the start of December 2010. Edward’s ratings are the worst for seven weeks though they are well above his “low” in the first poll of the year.
Nicholas Clegg’s numbers are the best since mid-February.
As regulars will know I regard these as a good pointer though I much prefer the Ipsos-MORI question asking if people are satisfied/dissatisfied.
The figures represent the reception that the budget has received and, perhaps, the level of media coverage that you see in budget weeks.
