Government poll rating nosedives

The COVID Diaries 147 – 27th August

The Conservative Party and Boris Johnson have suffered a dramatic slump in popularity after a summer of education chaos and local lockdowns, according to a new poll.

An Ipsos Mori survey shows just 29 per cent of those taking part as having a favourable view of the prime minister – down 12 points since July and the lowest score Boris Johnson has recorded since the December general election.

The Independent quotes Ipsos MORI Research Director Keiran Pedley as saying: β€œIt is clear from these findings that the reputations of the prime minister and the Conservative Party generally have taken a hit after a challenging few weeks – with a noticeable drop in public favourability towards both since July.”
