Public think Boris Johnson wins BBC debate by 52% to 48% just like the 2016 Brexit referendum


THE PUBLIC thought Boris Johnson narrowly won tonight’s BBC debate by 52 per cent to 48 per cent – just like the 2016 referendum.

The PM went head-to-head against the Labour boss for the final time before polling day next Thursday, and most voters thought he won, a snap poll revealed.

52 per cent of Brits thought Boris Johnson won tonight’s debate

YouGov’s instant analysis gave the same result of the Brexit vote back in 2016 – with just over half of Brits thinking the PM came out on top.

Chris Curtis, YouGovs Political Research Manager, said: Our snap poll shows that the public remains divided on who won the debate, just as with last month’s head-to-head, with most Labour voters thinking Jeremy Corbyn won, most Conservative voters thinking Boris Johnson won, and very few people changing their minds.

“But given the Conservatives went into this debate in the lead, they will hope the lack of a knockout blow means they can maintain this until voting day.”
