Cameron Has Lost Grip on Government, Poll in Sunday Times Shows

A majority of U.K. voters say that Prime Minister David Cameron has lost control of the coalition government, a YouGov poll for the Sunday Times showed.

Fifty-nine percent said they didn’t think the Conservative leader has a grip on government, more than two-thirds believe him to be out of touch and more people see him as weak than strong, the Sunday Times said, citing the poll.

Cameron’s Conservative Party trails the main Labour Party by 10 percentage points, with 32 percent support to 42 percent for Labour. Cameron’s Liberal Democrat coalition partner had 8 percent backing, according to the poll.

YouGov questioned 1,546 adults online between May 31 and June 1, the Sunday Times said. No margin of error was given.
