This makes Truss more unpopular even compared to Boris Johnson’s worst performance counterpart.

The voters of the Conservative Party also have an increasingly negative opinion, specifically at a rate of 71%, compared to 20% who see it positively.

Currently Boris Johnson’s popularity is at -36% and Rishi Sunak at -18%.

Opposition Leader Sir Keir Starmer’s popularity is at -5% and his Labor Party at +1%.

Meanwhile, according to an average of the most recent polls analyzed by Electoral Calculus, if an election was held now the Conservative Party would not only suffer an all-out rout against Labour, but drop to third place in terms of seats , with just 48, behind even the Scottish National Party (SNP) which would gather 52 seats in Scotland.

Labor would pick up an impressive 507 seats out of a total of 650, with 50.6% of the vote, more than double the Tories’ 24.1%.

The coverage for Ms. Trass is also negative in the newspapers after yesterday’s reversal of the mini-budget.

The Sun has the headline “The Ghost Prime Minister” as Ms Truss attended yesterday’s House of Commons meeting about her handling without taking the floor, leaving other ministers to argue for the government.

And the friendly Daily Mail reports in its front page headline that Ms Truss is in power, but without power.
