Poll: Clegg 'least popular leader in modern UK history'

Nick Clegg has become the least popular party leader in modern British political history, according to a poll.

YouGov research for the Sunday Times found just 13% thought the Deputy Prime Minister was doing a good job - compared to 78% who said the opposite.

The Liberal Democrat's -65% rating is even worse than Gordon Brown's -62% at the height of the credit crunch crisis in 2008.

The figures are a remarkable turnaround since the 2010 general election, when Mr Clegg had 74% approval and was hailed as the most popular leader since Churchill.
