With police forces facing cuts, the economy barely growing and NHS reforms sparking growing opposition, you might think this government would be unpopular.
But recent opinion polls suggest voters are remarkably forgiving – of the Conservatives, at least.
A YouGov survey based on fieldwork conducted on February 20 and 21 found that the Conservatives had 37 per cent of the vote with Labour on 41 per cent and the Liberal Democrats on nine per cent.
This compares to the May 2010 general election which saw the Tories get 36 per cent of the vote, Labour 29 per cent and the Lib Dems 23 per cent.
The poll shows Labour in the lead, but by a small margin.
And the same poll showed the Tories are actually in the lead in the Midlands and Wales with 41 per cent of the vote, compared to 38 per cent for Labour and seven per cent for the Lib Dems.
Before the general election, some commentators suggested that whoever won would end up becoming so unpopular with voters, because of the cuts they would be forced to make, that they might almost wish they had lost.
But it seems the public has been far more understanding than that.
A separate YouGov poll, based on fieldwork on February 16 and 17, provides more detail.
YouGov splits the country up into five regions, with the Midlands and Wales lumped together. It found that 22 per cent of voters in Midlands and Wales thought Ed Miliband was doing well as Labour leader, while 62 per cent thought he was doing badly.
The result wasn’t great for David Cameron either, with 41 per cent feeling he is doing well and 53 per cent saying he is doing badly, but he’s less of a disappointment than Ed – even though he’s the one overseeing spending cuts.
Poor old Nick Clegg is the biggest loser, with 20 per cent thinking he is doing well and 68 per cent saying he is doing badly.
Overall, the polls do show that Labour is beating the Tories. But there’s no sign of enthusiasm for putting Ed Miliband into Number 10.
