Support for UK's Conservative Party declines to lowest level 2019 elections

The poll revealed that only 1 percent of voters believes that new levy and social care measures will leave them well leaded

The support for the United Kingdom's ruling Conservative Party has decline to its lowest level since the 2019 general elections, after the government decided to surges taxes for the National Health Service (NHS) and social care reform.

 

The news agency Xinhua reports that a new poll that conducted by YouGov for the Times newspaper and released on Friday, had revealed that the support for the Conservatives fell five points to 33 percent after the government earlier this week had announced plans to surge the national insurance.

 

The result had unveiled the opposition Labour Party in the lead with 35 percent, for the first time since January at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

 

The poll revealed that only 1 percent of voters believes that new levy and social care measures will leave them well leaded.

 

Ten out of six voters did not think that Prime Minister of United Kingdom, Boris Johnson or his party had cared about to keep low taxes, while he did care about the two in 10 voters said.

 

The YouGov poll recommends the policy has sabotage the reputation of Conservatives as a party of low taxes without giving them the credit for the rise in investment in the NHS and social care.

 

The political research director at YouGov, Anthony Wells said, "We should be cautious of leaping to too many conclusions from a single poll but it looks as if the government may have sacrificed their reputation for low taxes amongst Tory voters without actually getting much credit for helping the NHS."

 

As per to the Times newspaper the Conservatives were leading over Labour was four points on 38 percent last week.

 

The newspaper said the poll results would alarm the Conservative lawmakers before the party conference next month and the rise of anger among those who are on the Conservative right and spoke against the plan.

 

The poll results will also be met with concerns in Downing Street, that carried off substantial polling in the run-up to the decision.

 

Johnson announced on Tuesday that a surge of 1.25 percentage point in national insurance, which is the biggest personal rise in tax over two decades, to pay for a 12 billion pound or USD 16 billion annual package for the NHS and social care reform.
