In new polling on behalf of today’s Mail on Sunday we’ve asked the public their views in detail post this year’s Budget, and updated Westminster, European Parliament and EU referendum voting intention. Full data tables can be viewed here:

Damian Lyons Lowe commented, saying that among voters that had seen or heard the details of Osborne’s core-Tory vote pleasing budget, 51% told us that it would make no difference to them personally and only 21% said the budget would make them better off vs 22% saying worse.

However, those voting Conservative at the last election said they would be personally better off by a significant 35% to 6%. Among the 34-54 age group positioned to benefit most from Osborne’s relaxation of pension pot withdrawal restrictions at 55, the Tories have increased their vote share since January from 26% to 36% – a significant gain, enabling the party to draw near level with Labour in our polling.
