Is Alistair Darling a Labour Cabinet Liability?

A YouGov poll for the Times indicates that 44% of respondents believe Alistair Darling should be replaced as chancellor (Only 27% think he should stay). They blame his clumsy handling of the Northern Rock banking crisis and bad news on the economy. The same poll puts Cameron and Osborne 6 points ahead of Brown and Darling when asked which team they trusted most to run the economy.

The Conservatives are on 41%, Labour on 32% and the Lib Dems 16%.
