Mr Nuttall's push to win the Stoke Central by-election is gaining momentum
The Ukip leader, who took over from Nigel Farage in November, has been made the odds on favourite to take the Labour stronghold by bookmakers as he officially opens his campaign office in the city saturday.
Plans have also been drawn up for Mr Farage to join Mr Nuttall in a major rally in the heart of the constituency.
The by-election, which will take place on 23 February, was called after Labour moderate Tristram Hunt quit politics to run the V&A Museum in London leaving the party to defend a majority of 5,000.

I've never taken a donation like that for a by-election before. It will really help us have a go at winning this seat
His resignation was a sign of the despair most Labour MPs have over Jeremy Corbyn's hapless far Left leadership and a belief that the party could be out of power for a generation and may never recover.
With Stoke dubbed the “Brexit capital" after almost 70 per cent of voters backed Leaving the EU, Mr Nuttall's message of making Ukip “the party of the patriotic working class" has gone down well in the city.

The outspoken Labour councillor who has been shipped in from Newcastle-under-Lyme also has attacked his own leader, describing Mr Corbyn as “an IRA supporting friend of [Islamic terrorists] Hamas."
The selection appears to underline the chaos and divisions in the Labour Party over Brexit as hard line Remoaner MPs try to force the leadership to oppose triggering Article 50.
The offer of £10,000 to pay for hotel rooms for activists comes as hundreds of party volunteers have got in touch to help Mr Nuttall pull off an historic victory which would create another earthquake in British politics.
Stoke Central has been held by Labour since 1950.
Party chairman Paul Oakden said: “I've never taken a donation like that for a by-election before. It will really help us have a go at winning this seat."
Mr Nuttall has told the Daily Express that there is “a new enthusiasm" in Ukip among members.
He said: “We have a renewed sense of purpose to make sure the job is done properly on Brexit and we're the only party who can be relied upon to deliver what the clear majority of people voted for including many thousands here in Stoke."
He went on: “It's still a tough ask to win in Stoke but if we do win here then I believe the floodgates will open because it will show we can win these seats from Labour in the North and Midlands.

“It is being suggested that more Labour MPs are going to quit and that will provide more opportunities for us."
Mr Nuttall has made it his aim to replace Labour in its traditional heartlands.
On Saturday he also writes in the Daily Express to dismiss myths put about by Labour that Ukip wants to privatise the NHS.
If Mr Nuttall wins on 23 February it could be a double humiliation for Mr Corbyn with the Tories widely tipped to win in Copeland on the same night where another moderate Labour MP Jamie Reed quit.
