Majority of Britons reject Brown as leader: Poll
London: A new poll suggests half of British voters would prefer anyone other than Prime Minister Gordon Brown to lead the country.
The Populus survey published today by The Times of London newspaper found 61 per cent of respondents believe Brown is a liability. Only 34 per cent of those questioned believe he is an asset for Britain.
According to the newspaper, 48 per cent of those questioned agreed that "literally anyone" other than Brown would be a better national leader.
Support for Brown`s Labour Party was at 27 per cent, behind the main opposition Conservatives on 41 per cent.
Populus interviewed 1,504 adults by telephone between Sep 11-13. No margin of error was given, but in samples of a similar size it is plus or minus 3 per cent.
