Public trust in the prime minister and chancellor has completely collapsed after the debacle over the mini-budget and subsequent market chaos, a polling company has found.
The poll by Redfield and Wilton found Labour was way out front at 52%, with The Tories at 24%.
This was around the same as the previous poll they conducted last week.
If a General Election were to happen tomorrow and the poll was accurate it would give Labour a huge majority.
All the historically Labour seats that the Conservatives won in 2019 would revert back to Labour and then many traditional Tory seats would also flip.
The biggest finding of the polling was the public standing of Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng has collapsed entirely.
Both of their approval ratings now stand at -44%, far worse than any approval rating that we had recorded for their predecessors Johnson and Sunak.
Among those who voted Conservative in 2019, Liz Truss’ approval rating stands at -24%. Kwasi Kwarteng’s is even worse, at -39%. Dire figures.
Leaders approval rating is seen as almost as important as the general position of the party in the polls.
Truss's personal approval rating has fallen by 11% to -44% and Kwarteng's has fallen by 14% to also -44%.
Labour leader sir Keir Starmer saw a 1% improvement to an overall net favourability rating of +7%.
The poll found only half of those who voted Conservative in 2019 say they would vote Conservative again in a General Election.
Just under a quarter of these people say they have switched to Labour.
The complete collapse in faith for Kwarteng and Truss mostly blamed on the drama around the mini-budget.
The budget saw a huge packet of tax cuts that mostly favoured the rich.
The package was announced soon after the government revealed its costly plan to tackle the energy crisis.
The twin fiscal policies of energy bill support and tax cuts led to many financial institutions and investors sound alarm over the lack of any proposal about how the government would pay for it.
This sent the cost of government borrowing soaring and has spooked many banks into hiking interest rates on their mortgage deals to heights not seen since before the 2007-8 financial crash.
