Tory voters have given George Osborne a huge no confidence vote on the eve of his crucial Budget.
Thousands are flocking to the UK Independence Party, boosting its support to a record high.
And voters’ faith in Conservative-driven economic policies has plunged to its lowest level since the 2010 election.
The Sunday Mirror/ComRes poll will increase clamour from Tory MPs who want the Chancellor sacked.
It shows Nigel Farage’s Ukip have a 17 per cent share of the vote – the highest since ComRes first polled voting intentions in 2004.
Labour has stretched its five-point lead over the Conservatives to nine at 37 per cent, with the Tories down three on 28. The Lib Dems are up a single point on nine.
If there was a general election tomorrow, the poll would give Labour a 102-seat majority.
In a further blow for Mr Cameron and Mr Osborne, public trust in their economic plan has fallen to minus 33. And 56 per cent of those questioned think the Chancellor’s economic policy is not working.
As David Cameron fends off speculation about a leadership challenge, 22 per cent of Tory voters from 2010 say they view the PM “unfavourably”.
Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls said: “Our clueless Chancellor just doesn’t get it,” he said.
“Why else would he be giving a £100,000 tax cut to millionaires while forcing millions of families and pensioners to pay more and hitting disabled people with the bedroom tax?”
But the Chancellor will insist today that he will not change course.
A Treasury source said: “If there were easy options then we would take them, but everyone knows there aren’t.”
ComRes chairman Andrew Hawkins said: “This poll is bad news for the Conservatives for many reasons, but dismay at George Osborne’s economic plans is chief among them.”
