This month is the first time since May 2012 that both David Cameron and George Osborne appear to be more trusted than Ed Miliband and Ed Balls with the economy, according to a new ITV News Index / ComRes poll.
In terms of net economic trust, Cameron scored -16 compared to Miliband's -34 and Osborne's -33 beat Balls' -40.
Shadow financial secretary to the Treasury Chris Leslie writes for ITV News in response to the Chancellor's Spending Review.
While the Conservatives and Lib Dem strategies are clear enough, Labour's response to government cuts is not yet obvious.
By excluding pensions and the benefits associated with the economic cycle, Osborne has put an automatic cap on a narrow range of benefits.
