Brexit: For 57% of Britons, leaving the EU was a mistake

With these elections due within two years, the ruling conservatives have struggled in the polls for months, mired in repeated political crises, and last week named their third prime minister – Rishi Sunak – since the beginning of the year. Sunak’s arrival has somewhat halted the bleeding, said John Curtice, but they are still 30 points behind Labor in the polls.

“No government in power during a financial crisis has survived an election”he recalled, as Liz Truss, Rishi Sunak’s predecessor in Downing Street, caused a storm in the markets with her economic program of tax cuts and unfunded spending. “They have lost ground because the public feels they can no longer trust (the Conservatives) to lead the country”concludes John Curtice.
