EXPRESS.CO.UK readers are backing Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party in their droves and turning their backs on mainstream parties at this month’s European elections, a survey has found.
The exclusive poll for Express.co.uk found a massive 86 percent of online respondents planned to vote for Mr Farage’s new party on May 23 as the scale of the backlash against Labour and the Conservatives became clear. According to our results, the number of people who said they would vote Tory this time round was so small it registered as a humiliating 0 percent. Labour fared little better with just 1 percent saying they would back Jeremy Corbyn’s party at the ballot box, according to the Express.co.uk poll.
Of the three main UK parties, the anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats, who saw a huge surge in popularity at last week’s local council elections, came out on top but still managed only 5 percent.
The poll put Change UK and Ukip on 3 percent each, the Green Party on 1 percent and ‘other’ on 1 percent.
A total of 48,465 people took part in the poll, which was conducted online at Express.co.uk between 3pm on Tuesday May 7 and 5pm on Wednesday May 8.
The survey suggests a crushing victory for the Brexit Party which would send shockwaves through the political establishment on both sides of the Channel.
Speaking before the results of the poll were released, Mr Farage predicted the European elections in two-weeks time would “change everything”.
He said: “I think this new Brexit Party that I set up four weeks ago has kind of appeared like a jack in a box.
“I think we are going to win these European elections. Possibly win them in quite a big way.
“What you will then see, is the people who are voting for us in a European election, are going to say ‘do you know what, I am going to vote for these people in a general election too’.
“People out there have had enough of not being told the truth. They have had enough of Brexit not being delivered.”
