There is some ComRes polling for ITV’s News at Ten on the ongoing phone hacking scandal. 82% of people think Rebekah Brooks should resign, 4% do not and 14% aren’t sure. last week ComRes found 75% of people wanted her to resign or be sacked, but the question appears to have been different so they are not comparable.
49% of people think that David Cameron has handled the issue badly (there is no figure for handling it well), 68% agreed that he had shown poor judgement in hiring Andy Coulson.
Slightly better news for Cameron is that he is the most trusted party leader to sort the issue out – 27% trust Cameron, 16% Miliband, 7% Clegg. 50% of respondents, however, say they do not trust any of party leaders to deal with it.
Meanwhile YouGov’s daily poll for the Sun has topline figures of CON 35%, LAB 43%, LDEM 10% – continuing to show a Labour lead of 8-9 points.
UPDATE: Tabs for ComRes are here. The question on whether Cameron handled it well didn’t actually ask if Cameron had handled it well or badly, it asked if people agreed with the statement “David Cameron has handled the phone hacking scandal well”. 23% agreed, 49% did not.
