Witney MP David Cameron most trusted party leader

In an international poll on attitudes to energy security and the environment, 61% of British respondents agreed that dependency on foreign energy supplies threatens national security.

When asked who they most trusted to solve the issues of energy security, more UK respondents rated Conservative party leader and Witney MP David Cameron (33%) then Prime Minister Tony Blair (31%), with the potential future prime minister Chancellor Gordon Brown and new Liberal Democrat leader Sir Menzies Campbell trailing at 23% and 13% respectively.

The online survey, conducted by market intelligence solutions provider GMI (Global Market Insite, Inc.), asked 9,000 people in nine countries about their opinions on energy and environmental issues in the run up to International Earth Day on April 22nd. The polling of 1,000 UK respondents was completed at the end of February 2006.

The Conservative leader David Cameron appears to be benefiting from recent news about winter fuel rises and mounting evidence of global warming, as well as his own proactive efforts to reposition the party on green issues. When asked who they regard as the most environmental politician, David Cameron (32%) came ahead of Tony Blair (30%), followed by Sir Menzies Campbell (20%) and Gordon Brown (17%).
