Dissatisfaction in May as PM hits record high

Theresa May’s popularity among the British electorate is at a record low, according to the latest Ipsos Mori polling for the Evening Standard.

69% of Brits are dissatisfied with the Prime Minister and a staggering 84% are unhappy with the government as a whole.

If you thought logically that this would be enjoyable reading for the official opposition, think again. 73% do not like Jeremy Corbyn, up three percentage points since the same poll was taken just two months ago. Just 20% of those polled are satisfied with the Labour leader’s performance.

The Conservatives are also expected to have lost a fifth of their 2017 voters to Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party, with just 25% of voters saying they would vote for the party if a General Election was held tomorrow, down 13 percentage points from March.

Ipsos MORI interviewed a representative sample of 1,072 adults aged 18+ across Great Britain. Interviews were conducted by telephone between May 10 and 14, 2019.

With the Brexit Party firmly on the march, things could get even worse for Theresa May and her administration after next Thursday’s European elections.
