What the Public Thinks About Each Party Leader

Big exclusive polling by the Daily Politics today. Who do you most trust to manage the economy? Cameron/Osborne 58%, Miliband/Balls 42% – damning for Labour. A glimmer of hope for Ed that he is seen as less weird than Farage, but a very small silver lining. Here is what the people think:

      Geedes it is strange only Cams and Farage have a listing as dishonest, and Dave principled very odd, as for, with out of touch Dave leads the lot.

        Just Saying. says:

        Says more about the UK public than it does of the four politicians.
        And it is not good. Bliar’s dumbing down and down edukashun policies seem to be working.

    Plonker Alert says:

    Miliband | Plonker | 100%

    The public think Farage is even weirder than Miliband. Can’t see Nigel at a Star Trek convention but I bet he wears leather undies and likes it when his German wife dominates.

    42% trust Ed & Ed to run things?
    Jesus wept, what planet are these people on?

      Hugh Janus says:

      My thoughts too. After 13 years of ‘managing’ the economy to destruction, 42% still think Balls is the man for the job? Please tell me that is a mistake ‘cos it’s deeply depressing. Even 4.2% would be generous.

        Jack Ketch says:

        49% of people believe in an Abrahamic God, 93% believe in an Afterlife, 25% believe that they have a “special” power and 15% believe in faries–rising to 100% among Liberal-Democrats. 30% have some form of mental illness which begs the question–where do the other 12% of Ball’s supporters come from?

      Just how shite though is the entire shadow cabinet. Even ignoring Miliband and Balls for a second, look at the rest of them, Chuka, Rachel Reeves, you’d never employ them so why would you vote for them

    Nige is an EU stooge to let the little englanders think they have someone fighting their corner and to stop further dissent.

      Ex-Labour says:

      “Little Englander”

      Dutiful tolerant patriotic backbone of the country.

      Enter Cultural Marxism to steal said country, import a new shower of voters to price out their owen voters, the despised working class, who are subsequently vilified: squawked at and finger-jabbed at for not conforming to the sudden rewrite of our culture and its morality.

      Destruction of a nation.

      It’s treason.

    Rather fitting

      the mystic mould with the appearance of the face of Jesus says:

      Louis XIV qu’on appelait aussi le Roi Soleil
      Etait souvent assis sur une chaise percée
      Vers la fin de son règne
      Une nuit où il faisait très sombre
      Le Roi Soleil se leva de son lit
      All s’asseoir sur sa chaise
      Et disparut.

      I think that is one of those “take it as a given” conditions, ’tis synonymous with “politician”

    Moley says:


    Clegg was not rated for dishonesty after his lies about tuition fees and welshing on his agreement over constituency sizes?

    No rating for Farage for principled?

    Farage weirder than Miliband?

    Populus should change their name to Manipulus.

    The weirdest politician is NF, twice as weird as Miliband even.

      Mr Nobody says:

      They’re both odd, but one pretends to be PM-in-waiting and the other has very little chance of even getting a single MP. It matters less for Farage whereas it’s a deal-breaker for Miliband.

    So basically like we all agree innit.

    They are all shit

    Jacky Treehorn says:

    Polls just show what a load of bollocks they are.
    How can the % for standing up for Britain be so low for farrage? Miliband and Clegg wiould sell the country for tuppence for a job in the EU.

    Thomas, Thomas, dat bad missa mouse must be UKIP.

    cannot be written on any of the pinheads, that appear to form part of that evaluation?
