Dave’s majority challenge 2 – leadership ratings

Dave’s majority challenge 2 – leadership ratings

Can the blues no longer rely on Ed’s numbers?

For a long period one of the great comfort factors for the blues has been that whatever the voting figures were saying Dave had much better leadership ratings

    Thus almost exactly 6 months ago Cameron’s net numbers with YouGov were 50 points better than Ed’s. The gap seemed insurmountable.

    Today figures for the Sunday Times have Ed a net 4% ahead.

The Tweets above set out the main headlines from the poll. Clegg drops to a new low but it’s the Dave-Ed battle that will be the best pointer to the election.

My sense is that EdM has a long way to go before he ever has a big advantage on these ratings but he has overcome a negative
