Press release from ComRes:

"The Conservative Party’s lead over Labour has dropped from 19 to 12 points, according to a ComRes poll for The Independent, providing further evidence of a “Brown bounce”.

It puts the Tories on 41 per cent, down three points on last month, Labour on 29 per cent (up four points), the Liberal Democrats on 18 per cent (up one point) and other parties on 12 per cent (down two points).

Gordon Brown is seen as “best in a crisis” by 43 per cent of people, with 33 per cent opting for David Cameron. Mr Brown (43 per cent) is more trusted on the economy than Mr Cameron (33 per cent).

However, Mr Cameron is regarded as more likeable by 53 per cent of the public, with only 28 per cent preferring Mr Brown.

The Tory leader has a narrow lead on who is most competent to be Prime Minister, by 40 per cent to 38 per cent.

The two parties’ economic teams were neck and neck when ComRes asked people which of them gave them most confidence in their ability to bring the country’s economic problems to an end. Mr Brown and Alistair Darling scored 39 per cent, as did Mr Cameron and Mr Osborne."
