UK business leaders became much more confident in Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg's during April, according to a poll by ComRes published today (Monday).
Between March and April, business confidence in the better known UK politicians picked up, but Clegg was the main beneficiary. Asked if they had confidence in Clegg, 41 per cent of the 170 chief executive officers and directors of the UK businesses said yes.
That rating is up from 20 per cent in March. Confidence in David Cameron rose to 65 per cent from 55 per cent of respondents, and in Gordon Brown to 28 per cent from 19 per cent.
