What’s Ed Miliband’s greatest weakness?

Is it his high spending, high taxing, union-friendly politics? The Red Ed factor.

Or is it the fact he just seems a bit weird and not ready to be a prime minister? The Odd Ed factor.

YouGov asked 2,333 voters last weekend and it now seems that Odd Ed is the clear winner (or should that be loser?).

39% say Odd Ed is the Labour leader’s biggest problem and only 14% say it’s Red Ed.

28% say neither factor is an obstacle for Mr Miliband.
