Just 48% of Brexit voters believe that the Tories are pro-Brexit, despite the Tory Party’s conference key message being ‘get Brexit done’.
A new YouGov poll finds that while there is a noticeable shift with the public since April in terms of their perception of the party’s stance on Brexit, 52% of Brexit voters still do not deem the party to be pro-Brexit.
The party that is seen the most to be pro-Brexit in the eyes of Leavers is Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party – with 87% believing it is in favour of leaving the European Union.
But it also appears to suggest 13% of Brexiteers do not believe the party is supportive of an EU exit.
More encouraging for Boris Johnson is that 52% of the wider public believe the Tories are pro-Brexit, up from 37% in April.
By contrast Remainers believe the Lib Dems are the most anti-Brexit party on offer, with 80% believing it is against the UK leaving the EU, up from 56% in April.
That is closely followed by the SNP with 75% agreeing it is trying to stop Brexit.
The Greens’ anti-Brexit position is recognised by 65% of Remainers with 46% recognising Plaid Cymru’s opposition.
However just 33% of Remain voters believe Labour is anti-Brexit with overall perceptions with the public shifting very little since April.
That is despite the party moving towards a People’s Vote with the option to Remain on the ballot paper.
By contrast 58% of Leave voters do view Jeremy Corbyn’s party as anti-Brexit.
The biggest shift for Jeremy Corbyn’s party is with those who see it as neutral on the Brexit matter, a position YouGov notes is probably “encouraging” for the leadership.
