Jeremy Corbyn is more popular than David Cameron, according to the latest voter satisfaction survey.

The Labour leader has the highest net satisfaction rating of all the main party leaders in the latest Ipsos Mori poll, despite continued criticism of him on all manner of subjects, including the Paris attacks.

That said, Mr Cameron is not having the best week of his life.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron and Ukip leader Nigel Farage have better net ratings than the Prime Minister.

And in fact all the leaders have received negative ratings overall, with Mr Corbyn on -3, Mr Cameron on -15 and Mr Farron on -14.

So really it’s a case of who has the least amount of egg on their face – in this case, most definitely Mr Corbyn. He was the only party leader not to see a fall in his leadership satisfaction ratings over the last month.

Out of the 1,021 interviewed between 14-17 November, 37 per cent of people were satisfied with Mr Corbyn’s work, while 40 per cent were dissatisfied.

Meanwhile Mr Cameron left two in five people satisfied – and more than half (55 per cent) dissatisfied with his job as Prime Minister.

However, Labourites should not get too excited about Corbyn’s success.

When it comes to their own supporters, Mr Cameron is ahead of Mr Corbyn, with four in five Tory voters satisfied, while only two thirds of Labour voters are happy with their new leader’s record.

And the poll showed a clear lead for the Tories overall, with 41 per cent of respondents saying they would vote Tory if there was a General Election tomorrow. Just 34 per cent opted for Labour.

The Lib Dems now have just seven per cent support, which is the same percentage as Ukip. The Greens are on 4 per cent.

This week Mr Corbyn battled controversy after his ally Ken Livingstone made an offensive comment to Labour defence spokesman Kevan Jones, caused by their disagreement over Trident.
