Poor poll rating heaps pressure on UK opposition leader Miliband

LONDON (Reuters) - The leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party, Ed Miliband, faced fresh pressure on Sunday as a poll showed backing for his leadership among party supporters had fallen sharply, days after he was forced to dismiss rumors of a plot to oust him.

A YouGov poll found that the number of Labour voters who believed Miliband was fit to be prime minister had fallen to 34 percent, down from 51 percent in October. Forty two percent said they thought he was unsuitable for the job, up from 28 percent in October.
