A separate ComRes poll showed mixed news for the Government over its plans to reduce housing benefit for claimants who have a spare bedroom in council and housing association homes.
By a majority of 46% to 35% they said the principle of the change - dubbed a "bedroom tax" by critics - was "only fair", the ComRes survey for the Sunday People showed.
But clear overall majorities said that its implementation should be delayed for a rethink on how to implement it (52%), that it should only apply if people refused smaller homes (60) and that it should not apply at all to Army families with children away on active service (77%).
