New MORI poll, featuring leadership question

The Voice doesn’t normally obsess over each individual new opinion poll, but today’s MORI poll is of interest as it has a question about the leadership election:

Q6 Which one of the following politicians I am going to read out, if any, would you like to see lead the Liberal Democrats?
Base: 938 British adults 18+

Chris Huhne 12
Nick Clegg 10
Other 6
None of these 14
Don’t know 58

  • Another good poll question would be:
    does your chosen news media keep you well informed?

    I think everyone should ponder those figures as it really sets out bleakly what the party has to do in terms of Brand building.

    What has a leadership candidate got to do with a Brand?

    Daft question anyway.

  • Very silly question, although the apathy is perhaps illuminating.
    As a non-supporter though, I am intrigued by the fact I have yet to meet a LibDem activist who has voted for Clegg. Or perhaps I should clarify: admitted to voting for Clegg.

    I have (both voted for him and met plenty of members and activists who have too).
