More than half of Britons who voted Conservative in 2017 have said they would vote for Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party in this month’s European Parliament election.
The YouGov survey of 5,412 adults found that 53 per cent of people who voted Tory at the last General Election would abandon the party, while just 27 per cent said they would vote Tory again.
An astonishingly low 13 per cent of those who voted to leave the European Union in June 2016 said they would vote for Prime Minister Theresa May’s party, compared to 58 per cent who said they would vote for the Brexit Party.
The statistics will make for sobering reading for the Tory establishment ahead of both English local elections on Thursday and European Parliament elections on May 23rd, where the party is expected to perform poorly due to its leader,
Prime Minister Theresa May, failing to deliver Brexit on time.
