In a somewhat surprising poll, the Green Party is rated as the second most "favourable" political party in the country shortly behind the Conservatives.

A ComRes poll, commissioned by the Independent on Sunday, which has been dubbed the "favourability index" shows that despite Labour leading the opinion ratings, they are less favoured than Natalie Bennett's party, David Cameron's Tories and Nigel Farage's Ukip.

In a further blow to Labour, Ed Miliband is also rated as less "favourable" than other party leaders including David Cameron and Nigel Farage, although Boris Johnson's popularity may also be a worry for the prime minister.

ComRes polled 2,023 British adults for their "favourability index". You can see the full results on their website here.
