Half of the British public believe that the Home Secretary is doing a bad job as 50% disapprove of Suella Braverman’s performance and 11% say she is doing a good job, according to Ipsos.
The Ipsos poll published on Monday found that 20% of 2019 Tory voters said Braverman is doing a good job and 33% say the Home Secretary is not doing a good job.
Just a fifth of voters trust the Tories policies on asylum seekers, immigration and Channel crossings and a third said the same over Labour policies.
52% of voters said they do not trust Labour’s policies on immigration and around 70% say they do not trust the Conservatives.
Gideon Skinner, head of political research at Ipsos UK, said, “This continues the criticism on this issue that we saw under Boris Johnson and Priti Patel, even among the Conservatives’ own voters, for whom this is of particular importance.
“They don’t though show much sign of preferring Labour on immigration.
“Even though Labour are ahead on this nationally, the public do not have a lot of confidence in either party, and instead the Conservatives will hope that the announcement of a new deal with France on Channel crossings will start to address voters’ scepticism, although fully regaining people’s trust remains a big challenge.”
