FEWER than half of Labour supporters want Ed Miliband to lead the party into the next general election, a poll for the Daily Mirror reveals.
The survey underlines the challenge facing the Labour leader, with just 21% of all voters satisfied with his performance. Double that (42%) are dissatisfied.
It comes after a difficult summer for him and follows high-profile criticism the party has failed to get its message across. Of those who backed Labour in 2010, 34% say he should not lead the party into the 2015 General Election, while only 46% say he should. Among Labour backers, 31% are dissatisfied, while just 45% think he is doing a good job.
