Nearly half (47%) of Britons say they are satisfied with Osborne's performance as chancellor, in a massive leap from last year when just 27% said the same, according to an Ipsos Mori poll.
This means Osborne's satisfaction rating is at its highest since he took over, while 44% are dissatisfied with his chancellorship.
Osborne's 47% satisfaction rating means more Brits are happy with his chancellorship than ever were with his Labour predecessors Alistair Darling and also Gordon Brown, in the twilight of his chancellorship.
Brown equalled Osborne's popularity in February 2006 and then his satisfaction rating slipped below 47% over the following months.
Ipsos MORI chief executive Ben Page hailed a "resurgent" Osborne in light of the latest positive poll findings.
However, he pointed out that Osborne's longtime predecessor Denis Healey, who received a 67% satisfaction rating in 1978, still was unable to stop the Labour government losing the election that following year as the Winter of Discontent set in.
