One in four voters are less likely to vote Conservative in next month’s local elections due to the national insurance hike, a poll has revealed.
And even one in five traditional 托里 voters said the 1.25 percentage point rise could put them off supporting the party, according to a Savanta ComRes survey.
The controversial hike for workers and businesses came into force last week, despite calls for a rethink backed by the Daily Mail.
The Prime Minister and Chancellor insist the £12billion a year it will raise is needed to provide long-term funding for the NHS and social care.
But critics fear it will worsen the soaring bills facing families.
The Liberal Democrats had commissioned the survey. Leader Sir Ed Davey said the poll of 2,203 UK adults showed that ‘lifelong’ Tory voters will take their ‘fury to the ballot box in May’.
‘Rishi Sunak has shown he is more con man than Conservative,' 他加了.

The found that nearly a quarter of adults – 23 per cent – said they would be less likely to vote for a Conservative candidate standing in their local election.
And even one in five Tory voters said the tax rise would make them less likely to vote for a Conservative candidate.
Sir Ed said: ‘People’s living standards are plummeting yet the Chancellor has shown he cares more about his own tax bill rather than helping out hard pressed families.
‘It should be a no-brainer for Rishi Sunak: Now is clearly the time to be slashing taxes, not hiking them.’
