Wisdom of the crowds #5
I got an e-mail a couple of days ago pointing out that in the most recent Mori surveys, here and here, people were asked whether they were satisfied with the way various politicians and the government are doing their jobs (the question for Brown is about whether his policies will improve the long term prospects of the British economy, which in every poll since 1976 has given lower satisfaction levels than asking about satisfaction with the Chancellor's performance) :
Brown 39% Blair 27% Cameron 25% Campbell 23% government 22%
Brown is doing slightly better than he was four years ago, Blair is doing worse than at any time since 1994 except for May this year, Cameron is doing worse than at any time since becoming leader, and about the same as Michael Howard, and Campbell is doing worse than Kennedy was at any point during his leadership, and no better than when he was first elected. And the figure for the government's performance is the worst since February 1997.
