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:

    Vote UKIP

    Watcher says:

    Troughers all

  3. 3
    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.

    Speedster says:

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

    Ed Miliband says:

    Live long and prosper PA.

    Isn’t Milliband one of J F Sebastien’s toys?

    Nope, I made him for NIghtmare on Elm Downing Street, which will maybe run in 2015.

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

    Chinese Emperor received in the home of Louis XIV

    Rather fitting

    Bread and Circusssesesses's says:

    Shhhh !

  13. 13
    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.

    Weird Ed and Fat ‘Ed. Hardly a winning combination!

    Listen up the unexceptional; I do not care what you think about me.

    These are all sovereign states and I am the sovereign!

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

    Robert says:

    How can people say Farage stands up for Britain when he hardly ever shows up to stand up for our interests.

  23. 23
    Miliband pitheth thitting down says:

    Nigel Farage stands up for Britain.

    still walking into darkness says:

    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

  26. 26
    Cameron the irony says:

    Keep your pervy fantasies to yourself weirdo.

  27. 27
    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.

    I sincerely hope he fucks off to Europe after May.

    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.

    Mr Nobody says:

    I’ve been saying for years that Ed cannot win and that his mid-term poll leads were nowhere near enough. Still over 13 months to go and we’re already talking about crossover, it doesn’t look good for Ed. No wonder certain shadow cabinet members are briefing against him.

    Gobshite says:

    Doesn’t say where they did their polling. My guess is Rampton.

    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.

    The Establishment corporate fascists are protecting Great Britain PLC. UKIP members are looking after the living standards of millions of British workers by restricting entrance to the UK jobs market.
    The left now squeal to protect their corporate masters but are too stupid to realise.

    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?

    “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.

    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.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
