DAVID Cameron is on course to win a sensational landslide general election victory next May, an exclusive Sun poll reveals tonight.
The Tory leader has notched up a 14 percent lead over Labour in the most crucial opinion poll for five years as voters' fury over the PM's handling of Afghanistan grows.
Our YouGov survey shows Mr Cameron is heading for a 96 seat Commons majority at the next election with a 42 percent share of the vote.
Labour don't appear to have a prayer as they trail on 28 percent with the LibDems on 17 percent.
The Sun's study was carried out as PM Gordon Brown faces a hammering over the Afghanistan war. And it comes as he struggles to keep the lid on a growing crisis over the release of the Lockerbie bomber.
Every August poll in the summer before a spring general election has predicted the real result accurately to within one percent since 1996.
This means, if history repeats itself, Mr Cameron will sweep into power in 2010 after 13 years of New Labour.
Voters also say Mr Cameron would make a better Prime Minister than Gordon Brown by a factor of two to one. Our survey shows 38 percent of voters believe Mr Cameron would make the best PM - to just 19 percent for Mr Brown.
Six out of ten voters say Mr Brown is doing "fairly" or "very" badly in Number 10 Downing Street.
Only 16 percent are prepared to say he is doing a good job.
The results of the YouGov survey are a huge bonus to Mr Cameron as the political parties prepare for their annual rallies in three weeks time.
I just wanted to share this little bit of grief for Gordon to cheer you all up! These YouGov polls are usually fairly accurate so I don't think Cyclops will be able to take much comfort from reading it. And, with the added pressure from Sky News and Adam Boulton the whole scenario is shaping up for a marvellous drubbing in both the Sky News debate and the upcoming election. The Megrahi affair can only make things worse for him too as it is bound to come up in the debate. The British public deserve to know the facts and it is high time Brown was brought to account for his actions - the real truth this time! McSnot already comes across badly with a well-rehearsed script and we can only imagine what he'll be like without that option in a live debate....oh, joy.
By the way, just a reminder that if you would like to sign the Sky News petition for the debate you can find it HERE.
