Only a quarter of the population believe the Chancellor's economic plan is right for the country, a new survey suggests.
The Index poll, conducted by ComRes for ITV News, found 24% agreed that George Osborne's economic plan is right for the country, while 41% disagreed and 35% did not know.
However, it appears that the public tend to blame the last Labour Government for the current economic situation rather than the current Coalition Government.
The survey, which questioned 2,019 British adults, found 37% blame the last Labour Government, whereas 16% blame the current Coalition Government and 32% blame both equally.
Official figures revealed Britain dodged a much-feared triple-dip recession with growth of 0.3% in the first three months of the year.
Today's news that a triple dip recession has been averted means very little in economic terms, but politically it is critical.
The latest GDP figures show Britain has avoided another recession, but the long-term picture is of an economy that remains resolutely flat.
