Times puts Cameron on course for number 10

There is a new Populous poll in the Time tomorrow which shows Labour up in its headline figures to 33% from 29%, whilst the Conservatives are on 37 (Unchanged) and the Liberal Democrats are down to 17% (-3)

Those figures give a hung Parliament with Labour the largest party (though the swingometer may not take account of a geographical shift in support, as I suspect there is with Labour piling its support in safe seats)

However when asked the same question but with a named leader, David Cameron, Gordon Brown and Ming Campbell the figures move to Conservative 42, and Labour 32 (presumably the Liberal Democrats on 15%) giving a Conservative overall majority of 24.

This is the second poll in a week giving the Conservatives an overall majority with Gordon Brown in charge and is very good news.

It has to be said that I would like to see an end to this phony war, Gordon Brown in charge and some sense to the polls!

Watching the way that the Labour party is going to give Brown a resounding coronation as leader and PM I still admit to finding it incredible.
Chatting to friends and family, everyone just seems amazed that they are going to pick such a vote loser.
Said friends are by the way a mixture of tory, libdem and SNP so maybe we are all biased, that said I have found it increasing hard to come across Labour voters who rate him and I live in Scotland!
