The general election polling is equally grim for Labour. The party is down six to 21 percent, 20 points behind the Tories. To compound Labour’s problem, its supporters are far less likely to vote than Tory ones.
Brown is clearly a problem for Labour. 35 percent believe Labour is the party most damaged by the expenses scandal and 7 percent think it is the Tories. But 62 percent state that Brown is the leader most damaged by the expenses scandal with only 5 percent saying that it is Cameron.
