A new poll has suggested that public confidence in the government leadership has fallen to levels which was last seen when Liz Truss was at the helm in Downing Street.
70% of pollsters told Ipsos UK that they are not confident in the Tory leadership whilst 25% said that they can provide a “strong and stable leadership.”
The Ipsos figures are very similar to when Truss was in Downing Street in October 2022, then 71% of pollsters said they had no trust in the Tory leadership.
Ipsos director of politics Keiran Pedley said: “These figures suggest that any recovery of the Conservative brand that occurred when Rishi Sunak took over as Prime Minister has more or less been reversed.
“Voters are as unconvinced in the Conservative’s ability to provide strong and stable leadership as they were in the dying days of Liz Truss’s premiership – and they are equally negative about the party’s long-term economic plan.”
