Support for the Brexit Party in a Westminster election could be even higher given that their numbers have improved broadly since this poll was conducted.
This is a phenomenal effort and illustrates how truly frustrated the country is with the two party system and the betrayal of Brexit.
Following the resignation of Prime Minister Theresa May, who announced today she would step down on June 7, the opportunity remains open for the Conservatives to pick a Brexiteer who can lead the UK out of the EU.
However, if they fail to do so, the Brexit Party will be waiting in the wings to ensure the Tories’ days in Westminster are numbered.
