Keir Starmer's approval ratings has now jumped well ahead of Boris Johnson's after support for the prime minister plummeted.
Almost half (48%) of the public has a favourable view on the leader of the opposition - according to new YouGov polling - compared to 43% that hold the same view of Boris Johnson.
That is an increase of eight points for Starmer, compared to a drop of 14 points for Johnson compared to the same survey in May.
Half of the country (50% exactly) now thinks Boris Johnson is doing a bad job - an increase of 14 points. By contrast 21% think Starmer is doing badly.
It means Starmer's overall net approval rating is now at 27 points compared to the prime minister's at -7 points.

That is a difference of 34 points in the survey, conducted with the British public over the weekend.
Last week a pollster said the shift in polling for Labour suggests that Keir Starmer had 'detoxified' the party.
