New voter intention polling appears to show the Spring Budget has done little to move the British public’s opinion of the Government.
According to their weekly voter intention tracker, pollsters at Omnisis found the Conservatives, on 25%, lost a point compared to last week, with Rishi Sunak’s net approval rating falling five points to -10.
The Labour Party didn’t fare much better in our latest polling, dropping four points to 46%, whilst party leader Sir Keir Starmer dropped two points to 36% in our ‘who would make the best Prime Minister’ tracker.
Brian Cooper, Managing Director of Omnisis, said: “We wanted to get a snap poll in the wake of the Spring Budget to see how the Government’s announcements resonated with voters.
“Whilst most people agreed the budget was good for the country, they also disagreed that it would be good for families and households.
“This is perhaps reflected in our voter intention tracker which shows less support for the main parties and a slight bump for those on the fringes.”
