Snap poll – Boris Johnson resignation – 30th April 2021

Snap poll by Savanta ComRes shows half UK adults (50%) believe Boris Johnson should resign if he misled parliament in denying alleged comment made that he would rather see “bodies pile high” than take the country into a third lockdown.
  • Half of UK adults say the PM should resign if he misled parliament (50%) over the alleged comments, a third say he should not (36%)
  • Even amongst 2019 Conservative voters, a quarter say he should resign (25%), while two thirds say he should not (64%)
  • Unsurprisingly, three quarters of 2019 Labour voters say the PM should resign if he misled parliament (73%)
  • Support for his resignation if it is shown that he misled parliament is highest amongst those aged 18-34 (59%)
  • Those aged 55+ are split on whether the PM should resign, with equal proportions saying either that he should (44%) or should not (46%) resign
