A BMG Research exclusive poll for The i has found that the Labour Party holds a 10-point lead over the Conservative Party, with 42% support.

The Conservative Party trail on 32%, while the Lib Dems were on 11% and the SNP, Reform UK and the Greens were all on 4%.

Elsewhere, the poll shows:

  • Boris Johnson’s personal approval ratings stand at -44, with 20% of voters saying they are satisfied with the job he is doing and 64% saying they are dissatisfied.
  • Keir Starmers NET approval ratings are 0, with 30% saying they are satisfied, the same amount saying they are dissatisfied.

“Our polling shows only 1 in 5 are satisfied with the Prime Minister’s performance and almost 1 in 3 of those not planning to vote Conservative cite Boris Johnson’s premiership as a key barrier, a major issue the Conservatives will need to address before the next election.”

“The leader they saw beat Corbyn in 2019 is now as unpopular as the man he defeated. With a net satisfaction rating of -44, Johnson now matches Jeremy Corbyn’s ratings at the lowest point in his time as Labour leader. Hardly a comparison that will give is party confidence the Prime Minister is capable of turning matters around and it already looks like some in Cabinet have started to take matters into their own hands.”
