It comes when four Tory MPs call on Mr Johnson to step down
But a cabinet minister claimed today that the prime minister could still win the next parliamentary elections for the Tories despite his calls for resignation.
The Tories have dropped to their lowest rating since 2013 in anti-Labor polls since 2013 after being angry about Boris Johnson’s dealings with Barrier Party No. 10.
Northern Irish Foreign Secretary Brandon Lewis backed Mr Johnson in the face of scathing polls and calls from Tory MPs to resign the Prime Minister after admitting attending a meeting at No. 10 during the first Covid lockdown.
A survey for The times by YouGov, which ran before Mr Johnson’s apology at PMQs, put Labor 10 points ahead of the Tories for the first time in nearly a decade.
The poll found the Tories hit 28 percent, with Labor ahead of 38 percent – their biggest advantage since December 2013. Labor rose one point while the Tories lost five points.
Sir Keir Starmer was way ahead of who would become the best prime minister. Only 23 percent said Mr Johnson would do so, while Sir Keir said 35 percent. Mr. Johnson’s approval ratings are at their lowest level ever.
The poll also found that 60 percent of people believed Mr Johnson should resign, including 38 percent of people who voted for Tory in the last election.
Mr. Lewis said Sky News: “Personally, I think the prime minister is the right person to become prime minister. I think we will be able to move forward and win a parliamentary election.
“We are busy. We have to do exactly what the Prime Minister has proposed, which are some of the major reforms that address issues the country would have liked to have addressed years ago, such as health and welfare, issues in Northern Ireland that have not been around in decades treated.
“This is someone who wants to deal with it and do it in a way that is suitable for everyone in the UK and that’s why I think he will win the next election.”
The times A poll also found that only six percent thought the Prime Minister was honest in his answers to questions about the alleged parties.
