Sunday Express – Boris and Brexit – Snap Poll August 2018

A survey of British adults on Boris Johnson and Brexit

• Over half of the British public do not think that Boris Johnson should be disciplined for his comments about women wearing the burka (53%). This is felt most strongly by the older generations, aged 65+ (77%) compared to nearly one thirds of 18-24 year olds who think he should be disciplined (62%)
• Theresa May is slightly more popular amongst the British public compared to Boris Johnson in who should lead the Conservative Party (26% vs 24%). However, ‘neither’ is the most popular option for two in five Brits (40%)
• Six in ten British adults say that protection of our rights to free speech have weakened (60%)
• Nearly three quarters of British adults feel less confident about Britain getting a good Brexit deal compared to after the EU Referendum result in June 2016 (74%)
