The Telegraph – Voting Intention and Brexit Poll – April 2019

Survey of GB adults on their voting intention, and policy preferences and their views on Brexit.

  • Two-fifths (40%) of the public see revoking Article 50 and remaining in the EU as an acceptable Brexit outcome – but an almost identical proportion (38%) also see leaving with no-deal in four days’ time as an acceptable Brexit outcome.
  • The two main parties are neck-and-neck in the voting intention (32% apiece) but with both dropping a few percentage points since our previous Daily Telegraph voting intention poll. The Conservative and Labour combined vote share is the lowest in a ComRes poll since 2015.
  • Change UK and UKIP appear to be the main beneficiaries, with the independent grouping rising by two percentage points, and UKIP up by three.
  • If the parties were to achieve these vote shares at a General Election it would result in Conservatives being the largest party but 38 seats short of a majority (Con 288, Lab 255, SNP 50, LD 18, Grn 1, PC 4, CHUK 15, source:
  • The poll also asked voters whether they would trust the Conservatives or Labour with managing four key aspects of Government – the economy, defence, immigration policy and public services like the NHS.
  • Neither party attracted a majority of voters who would trust them to manage any aspect, although 49% said they would trust the Conservatives to manage defence policy and 46% would trust Labour to run public services like the NHS.
  • Alarmingly for Jeremy Corbyn, almost four in ten 2017 Labour voters (37%) would not trust the Party to manage defence policy.
