Will Woodward has the story HERE. Although the Tory score is down one point, their lead is up one.
The results of the poll, conducted over the weekend after the Daily Telegraph had featured stories on MPs of all three main parties, underline the view at Westminster that Cameron's response to the 12-day furore has been more fleet-footed and direct than Brown's. But the results also suggest that voters believe all parties have been damaged by the row and that the issue has not become a general election decider.
More than two-thirds of those surveyed, 69%, say the prime minister has handled the controversy badly, including half of all Labour voters. But 55% of voters credit the Conservative leader with handling it well. Opinion on Nick Clegg, the Liberal Democrat leader, is evenly split: 37% say he has handled it well and 39% badly.
Some 63% of those asked thought all political parties had been damaged by the expenses scandal, but 34% thought Labour was most damaged. Some 17% thought the Conservative party had been damaged the most and 6% nominated the Lib Dems. The percentages on this question added up to well over 100% because voters were allowed to nominate two parties as well as "all of them".
