A survey of British adults on attitudes towards Donald Trump’s visit to the UK, July 2018.
- The public’s view of Theresa May reflects concern that Donald Trump is acting in the interests of the USA, with a majority – 53% – who disagree that ‘Donald Trump is a good ally to the UK and has our best interests at heart’.
- Almost half the country, 45%, agrees with Donald Trump’s comments that Theresa May ‘has wrecked Brexit and her plan is not what people voted for’. This includes one in three (36%) Conservative voters.
- More than three times as many Conservative voters, 17%, say she is handling the Brexit negotiations ‘very badly’, as say she is handling the negotiations ‘very well’ (at just 5%).
- Overall just one in five (20%) say she is handling the negotiations very or fairly well but 74% say she is handling them badly.
- Donald Trump’s positive verdict on Boris Johnson is also out of kilter with both public opinion generally and with the views of Conservative voters.
- Overall 60% of British people do not think Boris Johnson would make a ‘great’ Prime Minister and this includes 53% of Conservatives.
