Ipsos MORI Political Monitor, August - September 2006
11 September 2006
Satisfaction with the performance of Tony Blair as prime minister has hit new lows over the past two months, the latest Ipsos MORI poll has found. The prime minister's performance rating is now barely a third of what it was immediately following his landslide election in 1997.
Ipsos MORI Political Survey August
20 August 2006
Two thirds of the British public (64%) believe that it is fair to say that Tony Blair is "all spin, but no substance" according to Ipsos MORI's latest political poll exclusively for The Sunday Times. Just 28% of the public say that this criticism is unfair, giving a "spin over substance" index of +36. The public is divided about whether this accusation can be applied to Gordon Brown: 41% say it can and 45% say it cannot (an index of -4). A large proportion of the public have yet to decide about David Cameron, but where people do give an opinion they are more likely to say he is all spin, but no substance. Cameron's spin index is +11 (with 42% saying he is all spin and 31% saying he is not). Opinion about the leader of the Liberal Democrats, Sir Menzies Campbell, divides three ways: 28 % agree he is all spin, but no substance; 36 % say he is not; and 36% say they don't know. This gives Campbell an index score of -8.

This is lower than any other countries' leader covered in the poll: Merkel Germany (43% confident); Bush USA (41%); Zapateor Spain (35%); Berlusconi Italy (34%) and France de Villepin (33%).
