Two thirds (64%) in England support the last lockdown, only 20% oppose it. However, three in five (62%) think the lockdown was implemented too late. This is what has proved so damaging to the government: amongst those that support the latest lockdown but think it came too late, 62% disapprove of the government’s crisis handling.
Almost half (45%) think the current length planned for the lockdown will not be long enough, and 58% think it will last longer than the 2nd December. Only a fifth (19%) think the lockdown will end when it is planned to.
