One year from today, the country will go to the polls to give its verdict on the coalition's performance and decide on the UK's next government – so, as the final countdown is launched, what's the current verdict?
Labour and the Conservatives are apparently almost neck and neck in the polls after a surge in Tory support, according to the latest research.
But unfortunately for the Prime Minister, nearly half the population believe he is failing at his job – including more than a quarter of those who backed him at the polls in 2010. Additionally, 51% of voters don't think Ed Miliband would be any good in the job either.
Polling one year out from the next general election puts the Opposition on 34%, with the Tories up five points on last month to 33%.
According to the study by Survation for the Daily Mirror and Good Morning Britain, Ukip are on 18% and the Liberal Democrats are on 8%, both down two points.
Asked who they would support in a direct vote, Cameron was backed by 26%, the Labour leader 23%, Ukip's Nigel Farage 14% and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg 7%.
But in perhaps a stark illustration of the political apathy in the UK, two million young people have absolutely no intention of voting in next year’s general election at all, a separate study found.
In total 3.3million people will be eligible to vote for the first time in 2015 – but only 41% are actually planning to have their say at the ballot box.
Labour leads the way with 40% of the youth vote followed by the Tories with 25% and Ukip with 12%.
Disillusioned 17 to 21-year-olds think politicians are more interested in big business, pensioners, and... celebrities.
Ukip leader, Farage, gained a lowly 9% and poor old Clegg only managed 6%.
In contrast, Clarkson polled nearly double at 11% and Brand and Sugar both scored 12%.
