Gordon Brown bigot gaffe leads to plunge in popularity


One in three voters say Gordon Brown’s ‘bigot’ gaffe had affected their opinion of him, a new survey has revealed.

An opinion poll of 1,000 adults carried out yesterday in the wake of the Premier describing pensioner Gillian Duffy as a ‘bigoted woman’ revealed 34 per cent now like Brown less than they did 24 hours earlier.

Just over half of those polled said they ‘felt the same’ while 13 per cent said they now liked Brown more.

The OnePoll survey was carried out among 1,000 adults between 1.30pm and 3.00pm yesterday.
