New figures from Ipsos MORI’s Political Monitor reveal most Britons are unfamiliar with Anneliese Dodds, the shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer. Two in five (41%) say that they’ve never heard of hear while just under a quarter (23%) say they’ve heard of her but know nothing about her.
Twenty-two percent say they do not know very much about her and 11% say they know a great deal or fair amount about her. This compares with 46% who say they know a great deal or fair amount about Rishi Sunak, the current Chancellor, whereas just 12% say they’ve never heard of him and 13% say they’ve heard of him but know nothing about him.
The new poll also shows:
- Rishi Sunak’s job satisfaction ratings remain strong. Three in five Britons (61%) say they are satisfied with the job he is doing (down 3 points from September), one in five (19%) are dissatisfied (down 2 points).
- 82% of Conservative voters are satisfied with Sunak and 6% dissatisfied. Sunak even enjoys support from a majority of Labour voters with 55% satisfied and 28% dissatisfied.
- Almost half of Britons (48%) say that Rishi Sunak would make the most capable Chancellor compared with 17% who say Anneliese Dodds. Three in ten (29%) say they don’t know. This is the widest gap between Chancellor and Shadow Chancellor Ipsos MORI have recorded in the time the Conservatives have been in office since 2010.
