Nearly times as many Brits would prefer Boris Johnson as PM over Jeremy Corbyn, poll reveals – The Sun

NEARLY three times as many people think Boris Johnson is a better candidate to be Prime Minister than Jeremy Corbyn, a poll revealed on Sunday night.

A Survation poll for ITV’s Good Morning Britain found 47 per cent thought the Tory leader was the best person for the job, compared to just 17 per cent who said the Labour leader.


More people gave the answer “don’t know” than said Mr Corbyn, with 22 per cent saying they were unsure.

And just six in ten Labour voters believed Mr Corbyn was the best person for the job.

In contrast, 94 per cent of Tories in the survey backed their party leader.

Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson scored just two points lower than Mr Corbyn – on 15 per cent, while 72 per cent of the Remainer party’s backers saying she was the best candidate for PM.

Overall the poll found the Tories are leading with 42 per cent of support, with Labour on 28, Lib Dems on 13, Brexit Party on 5 and the Greens on 3 per cent.

A separate survey by Ipsos Mori found Brexit was the most important issue for two thirds of voters.

But it found that the public’s concerns about the economy have fallen to the lowest level in 12 years.

The survey found just 12 per cent of people are worried about Britain’s economy – half the number measured in the 2017 election.
