Keir Stamer’s rating shot up this week while approval for his Conservative counterpart continued to slide amid the coronavirus crisis.
Almost half (48 per cent) of Brits now have a favourable opinion of the Labour leader, compared to just 43 per cent who say the same of Boris Johnson.
In contrast a huge 50 per cent say they disapprove of the Prime Minister, giving him a negative net approval rating of -7 per cent, down 29 points.
Starmer’s net rating picked up four to plus 27 per cent.

Mexico hit its highest daily death toll last week as the crisis continues to mount in South and Central America.
