  • Deltapoll: "Putting aside any support for a political party you may have, which of the following do you think would be best for the British economy?"

Hypothetical polling


Some pollsters conduct surveys to compare figures who are not both party leaders. These could include a comparison of leading politicians within the same party (to gauge support for future leadership contests), or compare the current leader of one party to an alternative leader of a second. The politicians listed below include:

Johnson vs Sunak

  • Redfield and Wilton: "At this moment, which of the following individuals do you think would be the better Prime Minister for the United Kingdom?"
  • Ipsos MORI: "Who do you think would make the most capable Prime Minister"
