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.

Ipsos MORI Political Monitor November
27 November 2005
More of the British public is satisfied (49%) with the way that Gordon Brown is doing his job as Chancellor of the Exchequer than is dissatisfied (35%), giving a net satisfaction score of +14%. With the exception of the Autumn of 2000, during the petrol crisis, MORI's surveys have consistently shown that, on balance, the public is satisfied with the Chancellor's performance. In contrast, over half the public is dissatisfied (55%) with Tony Blair's performance as Prime Minister, with less than two in five (37%) expressing dissatisfaction.
Prime Minister / Party Leader Survey

MORI's recent poll for The Sun indicates that more than a third of the public (36%) would like to see Tony Blair step down as Prime Minister 'immediately'. Furthermore, when asked who they think would make the most capable Prime Minister, the public prefer Gordon Brown to Blair, albeit by a small margin (42% vs 39%). Support for Brown is greatest amongst Liberal Democrat supporters, while more Labour and Conservative supporters prefer Tony Blair.

MORI's latest monthly Political Monitor survey, conducted between 11 and 15 August 2005, shows that the proportion of the public satisfied with the way Tony Blair is doing his job has slipped to 39%, down from 44% recorded in MORI's July Political Monitor which was conducted in the aftermath of the London bombings. Terrorism/defence/foreign affairs continue to be seen as the key national priority, with over half the public spontaneously citing these as the most important issues facing the country.
