Snap Polling Shows Public Largely In The Dark About Autumn Statement Impact

UK

Snap opinion polling from the outlet YouGov shows the British public largely in the dark about the potential impacts of the autumn statement measures announced yesterday in the House of Commons by Chancellor of the Exchequer Jeremy Hunt.

  • "Today Jeremy Hunt announced his Autumn Statement. From what you have seen or heard, do you support or oppose the measures in the statement?" Strongly support: 4%, Tend to support: 24%, Tend to oppose: 15%, Strongly oppose: 11%, Don't Know: 46%. Fieldwork 17 Nov, 2.896 respondents.
  • "Overall, do you think the measures in the statement will be good or bad for the British economy?": Very good: 3%, Fairly good: 21%, Fairly bad: 19%, Very bad: 12%, Don't know: 45%. Fieldwork 17 Nov, 2.896 respondents.
  • "Overall, do you think the measures in the statement will do a good or bad job at combating inflation and the rising cost of living?" Very good: 2%, Fairly good: 17%, Fairly bad: 19%, Very bad: 13%, Don't know: 48%. Fieldwork 17 Nov, 2.896 respondents.
With the OBR forecasts projecting a decline in real household disposable income over the coming two years, the broad indifference shown in this poll could prove worrying for the Conservative gov't. Public more likely to react badly to tougher financial conditions they do not expect than ones they are widely anticipating.
