Ed Miliband is the least popular leader in modern times
Things are looking for bleak for the Labour party after a recent poll by Ipsos Mori for the Evening Standard place the Conservative party 3% ahead of Labour.
A mere 13% of those polled said they believed Ed Miliband was ready to be Prime Minister, which marks him as the least popular political leader of recent times. Even Iain Duncan Smith in 2003 polled 16% confidence, which at the time was regarded as a crippling failure.
The poll reveals Miliband to be less popular than deputy prime minister Nick Clegg.
In a further blow, faith in his own camp was shown to be low, with 53% of Labour supporters saying they did not believe Mr Miliband capable of leadership, and only 35% in favour.
Miliband’s bad run began when he forgot to mention the economy - traditionally regarded as among the most important policies for a party - at the Labour annual conference.
