Donald Trump’s odds of becoming the next president of the United States have plummeted from 70% to 20% after voters in the United Kingdom decided on the British government’s Brexit deal.
A survey of 1,000 British voters by the American Conservative found Trump was the most popular Republican presidential candidate of all time, with 43% of respondents saying they would vote for him to win the November election.
The poll found Trump would receive 41.9% of the vote, followed by Republican vice-president Mike Pence with 14.5%, former Secretary of State John Kerry with 10.5% and former Texas governor Rick Perry with 10%.
Trump’s position as the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee, however, is at risk with the election expected to take place on December 19, 2020.
“Donald Trump is the most unpopular Republican presidential nominee in history,” said Steve Schale, a Republican pollster who conducted the survey for the American Conservatives.
This is why it is a huge surprise to the voters of the UK, Schale added.
“The American Conservative is predicting that Trump is going to win a landslide victory in the election.
It’s just a matter of when.”
The American Conservatives poll was conducted from March 26 to 29 and was conducted by SurveyMonkey for the Republican National Committee.
The results of the poll were released on Wednesday by The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), which reported that the British people were “overwhelmingly in favour of a UK exit from the EU”.
“The overwhelming majority of people surveyed think the British are not being listened to and have no say in the matter,” the BBC said.
“They want their voice to be heard and to decide the outcome of the election.”
Britain’s election is the second most popular political contest in the UK after the election of the country’s first female prime minister in 2020.
A survey conducted by Ipsos Mori on Monday found that the Brexit vote was the countrys second-most popular election of all, behind the US presidential election in 2020, which saw Donald Trump win the White House by a slim margin.
