The ComRes George Osborne poll (UPDATED)

The ComRes George Osborne poll (UPDATED)

Should he worry about these numbers?

There’s a new ComRes online poll out for tomorrow’s Indy on Sunday and the Sunday Mirror. As well as the latest voting intention figures – LAB 42+1/CON 32nc/ LD 9-2/UKIP 8+1the big focus is on George Osborne with no less than nine questions relating directly to him. These are:-

Do you agree or disagree with this statement:

I am satisfied with the way George Osborne is doing his job as Chancellor of the Exchequer
Agree 23% Disagree 51%

In your view, does each of the following statements apply or not to the current Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne?

Is out of touch with the public Does apply 59% Does not apply 20%

Is too posh to understand the financial pressures on ordinary people Does apply 55% Does not apply 23% 

Comes across as arrogant Does apply 52% Does not apply 24% 

Has made too many mistakes to be taken seriously Does apply 48% Does not apply 25% 

Is an able politician Does apply 31% Does not apply 39% 

Is doing a good job in difficult times Does apply 27% Does not apply 46% 

Is leading the country’s economy in the right direction Does apply 25% Does not apply 46%

Should be replaced by someone like William Hague Does apply 21% Does not apply 34%

I’m not a fan of the ComRes agree/disagree format which can produce leading questions.
