Blair_smiling…Tony Blair.

That’s the conclusion of a YouGov poll for this morning’s Telegraph.

These hypothetical match-up polls have to be taken with a large helping of salt, of course.  Voters know Tony Blair but not James Purnell, for example.  Polls in 2005 didn’t suggest that a relatively unknown David Cameron would help the Conservatives very much compared to big beasts like Ken Clarke.  But as the leadership process wore on a big lead for Clarkestarted to evaporate.

The poll also finds that a whopping 77% of voters do not think Brown is up to the job of being PM.

The Conservatives have a 47% to 25% lead overall but The Telegraph hasn’t published a number for the LibDems.  When we get a number for the LibDems we’ll publish the usual poll graphic.
