Dissatisfaction with the government reached a staggering high of 83%, showing the enormous lack of support for Sunak’s Tory Party.

Potential Electoral Consequences

The poll indicates that if the current trend persists, it could lead to electoral disaster for Rishi Sunak’s party, with only a fifth of British voters backing them with a potential landslide defeat on the cards against Sir Keir Starmer’s Labour Party.

According to a researcher at IPSOS, Gideon Skinner, “The Ipsos Political Monitor started in the late 70s and has never recorded a Conservative vote share this low,” showing a potentially historical defeat.

Previous low points for the Conservatives include instances in 1994, 1995, 1997, and 2022, but nothing compares to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s current Conservative Government which has been under fire recently for various reasons.

Tory Slip-Ups Pave Way for Starmer

Sir Keir Stamer’s Labour Party is way ahead with a total of 47% after numerous Tory slip-ups, including a suspended MP for Islamophobia, a controversial Rwanda scheme and even a recent recession.

The Labour Party also experienced a two-point percentage decrease in the poll showing a lack of confidence towards Starmer as a potential leader of the UK, although the lack of support for Sunak is so large that it doesn’t make much of a difference.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer suffered blows in the poll’s results with only 29% of voters declaring confidence in Starmer if he were elected and a huge 55% saying they would not be satisfied with Starmer.

Electoral Implications for Sunak

The survey suggested that, if mirrored in a general election, Rishi Sunak’s party might secure as few as 25 seats, which would be a historic low showing the public’s lack of confidence after recent allegations and controversies.

Liberal Democrats and Greens

The Liberal Democrats experienced a slight increase to 9%, while the Greens saw a one-point rise to 8%, but it was Reform UK who shocked the nation and worried the Conservatives the most.

Reform UK’s Growing Influence

Reform UK, the right-wing adaptation of the Brexit Party, saw its support doubled to 8% causing concern among Tory MPs as their party’s support plummeted.

Anderson Reveals Controversial Opinion

The lack of support for the Tories comes after a troublesome start to the year, with former Tory MP Lee Anderson declaring his belief that both London and its Mayor, Sadiq Khan, are controlled by “Islamists.”

Anderson was subsequently suspended for his remarks that came shortly after the former Home Secretary Suella Braverman issued a similar statement, arguing that “Islamists” had control of London, although she was not condemned by the Party.

UK Enters Recession

Earlier this year, the UK entered a recession for the first time since the banking crisis of 2008, as the economy contracted over two consecutive three-month periods, although Chancellor Jeremy Hunt insisted the economy is “turning a corner.”
