David Cameron is rated by the voters as the best Prime Minister since Margaret Thatcher, a new poll revealed today.

He is beaten in the survey only by the late Baroness Thatcher who was scored positively by 43 per cent of the public.

Weeks after he quit Downing Street, David Cameron is considered a ‘good or great’ Prime Minister by 32 per cent of people – beaten only by Margaret Thatcher 
Tony Blair was third in the survey, carried out for The Times, on 20 per cent, ahead of Sir John Major on 14 per cent.
Just 9 per cent of the survey rated Gordon Brown as a good or great inhabitant of 10 Downing Street.
Mr Cameron was praised as a good prime minister by 40 per cent of Liberal Democrats – despite his electoral destruction of their party in 2015 – and even by 15 per cent of Labour voters.
