They believe the UK will have a better time than the European Union. With the Brexit negotiations set to take place, 45 per cent of people believe the UK will have a good 2017 – compared to 18 per cent saying the same for the EU. The British public is also pessimistic about the US, with the election of controversial billionaire Donald Trump leading to uncertainty over the country’s future policies.Gideon Skinner, head of political research at Ipsos MORI said: “Theresa May and Sadiq Khan stand out, although both outperform their parties – by a long way in the case of Labour. “A week is a long time in politics, and a year even more so, especially with Brexit on the horizon, but Labour has a long way to go to win back the confidence of the public.” This compares poorly to Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and Prime Minister Theresa May. Since taking over as leader of the United Kingdom, May has seen favourable polling – reflected in the optimism people have for her in Ipsos’ end-of-year poll. 51 per cent of people think that she will have a good 2017, compared to 35 per cent that think the year will go sour for her. She outperforms her party, which divides the country almost equally when it comes to its own 2017 fortunes.Sadiq Khan, enjoying popularity as London Mayor, enjoys the fact that 58 per cent of Brits thinking that he will have a successful 2017 – rising to 73 per cent of Londoners.
