British Prime Minister Gordon Brown's popularity has dropped to an all-time low, a new poll suggested Friday.
Brown's government has been hit by a series of scandals in recent months, from a British banking crisis to the losses of millions of Britons' personal data, as well as rows over donations to his Labour Party.
According to the YouGov poll in The Daily Telegraph, some 60 percent of respondents were "dissatisfied" with his performance, compared to 48 percent in October, and just 27 percent in July, while 51 percent say he has been poor or very poor.
His government's approval ratings also fell to 22 percent, from 32 percent before the last general election in May 2005.
Overall, the survey put backing for Labour at 31 percent, down one percentage point from last month and 12 points behind the main opposition Conservatives, who held steady on 43 percent. The smaller Liberal Democrats were on 16 percent, up three points.
The Daily Telegraph said that if the poll's results were reproduced in a general election, the Conservatives would likely win an overall majority in the House of Commons and Labour could lose as many as 100 parliamentarians -- it currently has 352 MPs.
In a further blow to Brown, Conservative Party leader David Cameron received his highest-ever ratings, with 47 percent of those queried saying he was "proving a good leader" for his party.
YouGov questioned 2,060 voters between December 17 and 19 for the survey. ( AFP )
