News from the saddling enclosure

The Telegraph reports that "Gordon Brown's personal popularity has fallen to an historic low". This must be good news for David Miliband, Harriet Harman, Jack Straw, Alan Johnsone and the rest of the runners and riders, mustn't it? No it isn't as The Telegraph/YouGov poll also reports that:
Under Gordon Brown, Labour trail the Conservatives 25 : 47
under David Miliband this would drop to 24:47
under Jack Straw this would drop to 24:45
under Alan Johnson this would drop to 19:49
under Ed Balls this would drop to 18:50 (Lib Dems on 18%) - popular chap Ed "so what" Balls, isn't he
For some reason Harriet Harman's name does not appear but I cannot see her getting many votes from men.

There is one possible Labour leader that would improve upon Gordon Brown's figures; he has the experience, the name recognition and the dreadful wife - yes, it's Tony Blair who would improve the figures to 32:41...
