Late last year I reported that Cameron’s net satisfaction ratings were falling off a cliff right from the beginning.

You’ll be pleased to know that the trend is continuing very strongly.

According to Ipsos-Mori, where the poll comes from, Cameron’s net satisfaction rating has fallen by 18pts since December.

The government’s approval rating overall is at -31 points (61% dissatisfied, 30% satisfied). That’s just around 9 points away from YouGov, which gives a approval rating of -22.

It’s unlikely Cameron will fall as low as Gordon Brown but he’s heading straight there.

The reason why Cameron’s approval rating won’t fall as low as Brown’s is because Labour do not have a Coulson to feed the Press negative articles.

I’m sick of Dead Ed playing the long game when real people are hurting

Ed’s not the only one playing the long game – the reason Cameron will be less concerned about this than you’d hope is that he’s clearly trying to get through all the unpopular stuff at the start of his term. We can look forward to bread and circuses in about three years.

I’m more inclined to take this as a heartening indication that disapproval of cuts spreads well beyond those personally affected, and to hope that this means many floating voters who voted Tory in the election aren’t happy with what Cameron’s doing.

Cameron is really starting to show his true self. Most would just say a deceiver and liar.

It is annoying that Ed Milli is not landing the hard punches yet.

“The reason why Cameron’s approval rating won’t fall as low as Brown’s is because Labour do not have a Coulson to feed the Press negative articles. “

Yes, if only New Labour knew something about spin.

The Prime Minister is not elected by the public.
It would be much more interesting to know how much suppotr he has in Parliament.

Told you so, not that you needed to be particularly insightful to see it coming.

“Yes, if only New Labour knew something about spin.”

New Labour are spectaularly bad at spin. they presided over a decade long boom and shed votes continuously. If everyone knows you are spinning, you are not spinning well.

The 21st century is all about media management, Labour were just in power when it became important, they weren’t the inventors of it, merely the “first”.

you ain’t seen nothing yet. they’ve just found a new load of news of the world emails. if that leads to coulson it will embarass to say the least cameron. i’m loving this.

@6

Well-reasoned at the time, but I bet you’re regretting that typo (can’t -> can)… 😉

This is supposed to cheer me up? All he needs now is for Argentina to get a bit uppity and he’ll be in the job for another 10 years at least.

@10

Yeah, because if the Argentinians decide they want the Falklands/Malvinas back, Dave can just send the Ark Royal over – those Harriers will…

oh.

😉

Hah, yeah 🙂

I’ve realised that if you stop and think about the title of this piece, it sounds a lot like a scene from Inception.

11 – It’s OK, the Falklands are now defended by RAF Typhoons, and Argentina’s navy mostly dates back to the 1980s. Even if they did manage to scrape up an assault force, there are almost certainly RN nuclear attack-class submarines in the area.

You need to look at both sides of the equation…

Yes and to help Miliband tells Flint your in charge of housing, do not worry I suspect in a years time Cameron will be riding high as the Newer progressive bullshit Labour party looks around to find socialism is now within the Tories.
