Daily Mirror – Donald Trump Visit, July 2018
A survey of British adults on attitudes towards Donald Trump’s visit to the UK, July 2018.
  • The public’s view of Theresa May reflects concern that Donald Trump is acting in the interests of the USA, with a majority – 53% - who disagree that ‘Donald Trump is a good ally to the UK and has our best interests at heart’.
  • Almost half the country, 45%, agrees with Donald Trump’s comments that Theresa May ‘has wrecked Brexit and her plan is not what people voted for’. This includes one in three (36%) Conservative voters.
  • More than three times as many Conservative voters, 17%, say she is handling the Brexit negotiations ‘very badly’, as say she is handling the negotiations ‘very well’ (at just 5%).
  • Overall just one in five (20%) say she is handling the negotiations very or fairly well but 74% say she is handling them badly.
  • Donald Trump’s positive verdict on Boris Johnson is also out of kilter with both public opinion generally and with the views of Conservative voters.
