Over the last year to now, ConservativeHome has tracked Boris Johnson’s ratings – in terms of how well our survey panelists think he has managed the Coronavirus crisis.
The Prime Minister will be happy to see that they have given him a good score yet again.
In total, 74 per cent of respondents (out of 862 people) said that Johnson is dealing with Covid-19 well.
To remind readers of previous scores, these are:
- April 2021: 75 per cent
- March 2021: 74 per cent
- February 2021: 74 per cent.
- January 2021: 65 per cent.
- December 2020: 45 per cent.
- November 2020: 37 per cent.
- October 2020: 42 per cent.
- September 2020: 30 per cent.
- August 2020: 49 per cent.
- July 2020: 61 per cent.
- June 2020: 64 per cent.
- May 2020: 72 per cent.
- April 2020: 84 per cent,
- March 2020: 92 per cent.
The percentages appear to reflect different parts of the crisis – gradually rising as the vaccine programme kicked in.
Johnson’s ratings have essentially stayed around mid 70s mark since February.
Will the percentage get to the Prime Minister’s March 2020 levels again? Well, we’ll have to see.
