Gordon Brown as Popular as a rattle snake in a lucky dip: Official!

A poll by Yougov in today's Telegraph confirms what many have suspected. Gordon Brown is in fact as popular as a rattlesnake in a lucky dip. His personal approval ratings are at an all time low. 60% of people asked are dissatisfied with Gordon Brown, compared with 24% who think he is doing a good job.

To put that in perspective, those sorts of numbers saw Margaret Thatcher ditched and were John Major's ratings in 1997. It does not get much worse, and all this after 5 months in office. Impressive.

Meanwhile the voting intention figures show the Conservatives on 43% (NC) Labour on 31% (-1) and the Liberal Democrats on 16% (+3). According to Anthony Wells swing calculator that would give the Conservatives a working majority of 68.
