Very interesting finding from the latest marginals poll by Channel 4/YouGov today. They asked the question:
"Who would make the best Chancellor after the election"
The answers were:
Vince Cable: 27%
Alistair Darling: 17%
George Osborne: 15%
This is pretty damning stuff for the Tories and ties in with what I have been saying for a while. Osborne is a liability for them.
It's great to see Vince getting the recognition he deserves. It is so difficult for spokespeople in any portfolio to get recognition for the third party so his achievement here is even more incredible.
