An exclusive poll by Omnisis for the Byline Times has revealed voters now see the Conservative Party as overwhelmingly prioritising their own interests, and those of their donors, over the public.
We asked voters whose interests they believe Rishi Sunak’s party now most represents with 59% saying the Conservative Party most represent its own interests, or its donors, compared to just 11% who say it most represents the public.
46% said the party most represents its own interests, with 13% saying they most represent donors. A further 18% said the party most represents the interests of businesses.
This compares badly to the Labour Party. According to Omnisis, 36% of the public believe that Keir Starmer’s party most represents the interests of the public, with 35% saying they instead most represent either themselves, or their donors.
Public trust in Sunak himself appears to be higher than in his party, however. Asked if he represents the interests of people like them, 31% said he did, compared to 32% for Starmer.
However, significantly more voters mistrust Sunak to represent their interests, with almost half (48%) saying they don’t trust the Prime Minister to represent them, compared to 39% for the Labour leader.
