- 23% are satisfied with Gordon Brown and 59% dissatisfied.
- The Conservatives have a 1% lead on economic competence – 33% to 32%; Labour had a 49% to 27% advantage at the last election.
- 11% think Alistair Darling is doing a good job; 53% think he’s doing a bad job.
- 52% agree that the Government is neither competent nor efficient.
- 60% agree that Labour appears sleazy; only 31% say the same of David Cameron’s Conservatives.
You can access all of the numbers from within this page on Telegraph.co.uk.
