Tories sink to lowest poll level since March after Cabinet reshuffle and Rwanda ruling
The Conservative Party fell to its lowest level of poll support since March in the wake of the sacking of Suella Braverman, the Cabinet reshuffle and the Rwanda ruling last week.
A new survey conducted by Redfield & Wilton Strategies on November 19 put the Tories on 24 per cent of the vote and Labour on 43 per cent, giving the latter an overall lead of 19 points.
Labour were unchanged when compared to the company’s previous poll conducted on November 12 but the Tories were down by three points.
Support of 24 per cent tied the lowest level recorded for the Tories since Rishi Sunak became Prime Minister at the end of October last year.
The last time the Tories were as low as 24 per cent was in March this year. Mr Sunak will be hoping tomorrow’s Autumn Statement, which is expected to include some tax cuts, will help to deliver a boost to his party.
