Labour extends opinion poll lead
Labour has extended its poll lead to four points but just one in five people can imagine Ed Miliband as prime minister, according to a poll.
The survey put Labour on 34%, unchanged from last month despite infighting within the Opposition ranks and speculation about Mr Miliband's leadership, with the Tories down one point on 30%.
The ComRes study for the Sunday Mirror and Independent on Sunday put Ukip on 19%, the Liberal Democrats up one point on 8% and the Green Party down one point on 3%.
The proportion of people who said they could imagine Mr Miliband in No 10 has fallen to 20%, down from 25% 12 months ago, with those disagreeing up six points on 59%.
Only 50% of Labour voters said they could imagine Mr Miliband as prime minister, a fall of nine points compared to November 2013.
Almost a quarter (24%) of Lib Dem voters said they could imagine the Labour leader in No 10.
Some 29% of those asked trusted the Labour leader to stand up for working people, compared with 22% for David Cameron.
Some 50% expect Mr Cameron to make deep cuts to public services if he is in No 10 after the 2015 election, compared with 24% for Mr Miliband.
With the prospect of a Channel 4 spoof documentary about Ukip being broadcast next year, the poll asked who should play the main party leaders on screen from a selection of popular actors.
The most popular choice for Mr Cameron was Hugh Grant - who played a prime minister in Love Actually - with 18% of the vote, ahead of Colin Firth on 17%.
Mr Bean star Rowan Atkinson was the choice of 27% of people to play the Labour leader and 21% of people to play Nigel Farage.
Nick Clegg - whose wife Miriam suggested earlier this month should be played on screen by George Clooney - was also earmarked as a role for Grant (17%).
