Tories seize lead in polls
Cameron’s approval rating, with a net 34% of people expecting him to do well, is well above that for Blair and Charles Kennedy, the Lib Dem leader. More significantly, it easily outstrips Gordon Brown’s rating, which has slumped. His net approval rating was 41% before the general election; now it is just 4%.
Let's have that again. Cameron 34% - Brown 4%.
But what if the economy continues to slide - heavens he might really become unpopular!
