At 4763 total replies, this is the second-biggest response to a ConHome survey that I can find in our archives. It is also the most rapid – we put it up only yesterday.
Fifteen hundred replies or so is a very substantial sample. Obviously, party members and our readers are angry in the election’s aftermath, and it may be that if the question is asked again in a week’s time, it gets a different answer
None the less, that two in three of her own members, according to this survey, believe that a Conservative leader should resign is astonishing. It is the most damning finding that in one of our polls that I can remember.
The view of our readers as a whole? 65 per cent believe that May should announce her resignation, and 31 per cent do not.
