Cameron set to topple Brown in UK election

A Sun poll in the UK predicts that Tory (Conservative Party) candidate David Cameron (upper photo) will sweep to power with a 96-seat majority in the House of Commons.

Seven in ten voters think Gordon Brown (lower photo) is doing a "very bad" or "fairly bad" job of supporting British troops in the Afghan conflict.

In a further blow to the Prime Minister, twice as many voters believe Britain's armed forces would be better off in Mr. Cameron's hands.

The poll also reveals 51 percent of people think Mr. Brown should have actively opposed the Scottish decision to release the Lockerbie bomber which is often referred to as the “oil for terrorist” deal with Libya.

More than one third believe the bomber release will do nothing to boost trade relations with Libya.
