(% in brackets relate to ComRes/Daily Express poll on 28 September 2018)
- As Theresa May clings on, half (47%) of adults say she should remain in post at least until 29th March 2019, when Britain officially leaves the EU.
- Despite Jacob Rees-Mogg’s efforts, only three in ten (31%) think May should resign, and only 17% think Rees-Mogg should replace her.
- Voters are split evenly on whether Theresa May should continue as Prime Minister for the foreseeable future (38% agree vs. 41% disagree). But this rises to seven in ten (72%) among Tory voters.
- Only a quarter (26%) say May should trigger a General Election immediately.
- However, Labour have increased their lead over the Conservatives (40% vs. 36%) – while Labour remain unchanged since the last ComRes/VI poll for the Daily Express (28th September), a tumultuous week for the Government is reflected in the polls with a 3 percentage point decrease for the Conservatives (Labour are unchanged).
- Just over half (53%) of adults do not think there should be a second referendum but that the 2016 referendum result should be respected, while 47% think there should be a second referendum of some kind.
