Even CON voters give the Health Sec negative numbers
YouGov’s February leader ratings are out and the bad news for the health secretary is that 17% of those sampled said he was doing WELL compared with 65% saying BADLY. What’s even more striking is that amongst those who voted CON at the general election the split was 36% WELL to 49% BADLY. Generally party supporters rate their own positively.
The Hunt figures compare Corbyn’s 25% WELL to 59% BADLY overall. This represents an improvement from last month of a net +2% for the LAB leader. Also least he’s not getting negative ratings from LAB GE2015 voters. They split 43% WELL to 40% BADLY.
The onslaught from the Tory press against Cameron’s EU negotiations is seen in his worst set of YouGov numbers since the election. He’s at 39% WELL to 53% BADLY which is down a net minus 8% since January. Amongst CON general election voters the split is 76% WELL to 20% BADLY.
