That’s the overwhelming verdict of almost two-thirds of Lib Dem Voice readers, according to our recent poll asking, “Do you think Gordon Brown will get to enjoy a second anniversary as Prime Minister?” However, a fairly significant minority – 21% – dissented, taking the view that the Labour party will choose to ditch their leader within the next 12 months.

Here are the results in full…
