Political Polling 6th June 2018

The Conservatives have fallen back slightly on last week, although they have retained a 2-point lead in the polls.

Labour is up one point, on 40%, while the Conservatives are down one point to bring them to 42%.

Leader Approval Ratings

Jeremy Corbyn has seen an improvement in his leadership ratings, going from a net rating of -18% last week to -13% this week. Theresa May’s ratings have remained stable on net -8%.

Theresa May’s lead over Jeremy Corbyn on who would make the best prime minister has dropped from 13 points to 10 points (currently it stands at 35% for May vs 25% for Jeremy Corbyn).

This is the smallest gap between the two since March.

How likely is Brexit to happen?

Just over half (55%) still think it is likely that the UK will leave the European Union in March 2019, while only 17% think it is unlikely. However, Labour Leavers are more pessimistic, with only 47% believing it to be likely that the UK will leave in March 2019, while 25% think it is unlikely.

If it looks unlikely that Theresa May can deliver Brexit by the original timeline of March 2019, half (50%) think she should resign as prime minister in favour of someone who has a greater chance of delivering Brexit.
