Is this why he’s edging up the leader ratings?
YouGov’s weekly leader ratings are out and show Cameron unchanged at 41/52 “well/badly”; Miliband up a net 4 at 28/56 and Clegg up a net 2 at 24/66.
The Miliband numbers reflect a trend that’s been seen since before the conference season started – better figures for their leader from Labour voters. Back in mid-September he was at 52/39 – today’s data has that at 62/28. That’s a net move of 21 points.
He still has the worst figures from his own voters of all three party leaders but, as the chart shows, there has been a marked improvement.
