For those of you who can't get behind the Times paywall, here's a single sentence summary of that Populus poll (see our newslinks for highlights):
"I'm more fed up with that budget than ever, but the defict must be tackled, and I just don't rate Ed Miliband: as for the general election, come back to me nearer the time."
I hope that helps. Also see Tim Montgomerie's MajorityConservatism piece yesterday on how George Osborne plans to pound Miliband into a lump of jelly.
My view is as before: David Cameron won't gain a 10 or so point lead, so his best hope after the next election is to lead a minority Government or re-form this Coalition (or form a new one).
