Last Friday, we reported that three in five members of the ConservativeHome panel now back Theresa May’s deal – the first majority for it that we’ve found among Party members.
Their support for No Deal is greater, if our findings, from the same panel, are anything to go by. Seventy-five per cent are for it outright, and 70 per for it in a managed form.
Nothing else is remotely in that territory. Almost one in four back EEA/EFTA – the “pure” form of Norway, as it were. Nothing else really troubles the scorers.
The options presented were those offered to MPs during last week’s indicative votes. Today, there are more. Activists clearly view anything other than No Deal – and, to a lesser extent, May’s Deal – with a lack of support, interest or both.
