A new poll has revealed that Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party is the most trusted party in the country to represent the interests of the British people.
The poll, which was conducted by Ipsos MORI, surveyed 1,090 adults between the 27th and 30th of September and found that Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party had the highest level of trust among British parties, securing 31 percent of the vote.
The poll also discovered that Jeremy Corbyn’s attitude and proposals toward Brexit are not appealing to Britons, with 64 percent of respondents saying that they were dissatisfied with his proposals for leaving the European Union.
Giving respondents aged between 18 and 75 years-old the choice between 16 politicians and institutions, the Ipsos pollsters asked: “Who do you think is on the side of the British people?”
31 percent of respondents reported that they believed the Brexit Party was “more on the side of the British people” while 29 percent of respondents said the same about the party’s leader Nigel Farage.
Among the politicians or institutions which received the second-highest score, at 30 percent, were MPs who wished to leave the EU with a deal.
Less than a quarter of those who were surveyed said they were satisfied with Brexit proposals put forth by the Labor party.
Boris Johnson fared a little bit better, with 36 percent of respondents saying that they satisfied with his handling of Brexit. A whopping 54 percent reported that they were dissatisfied with Johnson’s approach toward Brexit.
The poll also asked voters: “Who do you think is on the side of the British Establishment?
To this question, 42 percent of survey respondents voted for the Conservatives while Boris Johnson came in second place. In third, were Remain MPs at 35 percent.
The survey also asked individuals how much they trusted the British Establishment to put the needs of the British people above their own interests.
Just 17 percent of respondents said they trusted the Establishment “almost always” or “most of the time” to put the needs of the nation first when it comes to Brexit.
42 percent said that they “almost never” trusted the Establishment when it comes to Brexit.
While commenting on the poll’s results, Keiran Pedley, the Research Director for Ipsos Mori, said: “In public opinion terms there is clearly political mileage in attacking the ‘British Establishment’.
