PopulusFour-fifths of the questioning for this Populus survey for The Times was undertaken before Brown made his non-election announcement.  It does not capture the announcement’s fallout, therefore.

Two things are clear from the poll, however:

  • The LibDems are in trouble.  First Ming lost support to Labour and he’s now losing it to the Conservatives.  Populus has never recorded a rating as low as 12% for the LibDems.
  • The Conservatives are narrowing the ‘deal with economic difficulties’ gap.  Immediately after the Northern Rock episode Darling-Brown enjoyed a 56% to 18% lead over Osborne-Cameron.  It’s now just 43% to 28%.
