Would Boris Johnson PM be good for your business?

With Theresa May stepping down as prime minister, the Tory Party is holding a leadership election. Whoever they pick will not only become leader of the party but also leader of the country.

At the moment, former foreign secretary and Brexiteer Boris Johnson is the front-runner and seems likely to win.

So we decided to ask small business owners across the country what they thought about Boris and what impact they thought he’d have on their business if he were successful.

The results

One in two (52.75%) said they thought Boris Johnson PM would have a positive effect on their business, with just under a quarter (24.18%) saying he’d have a very positive effect.

Whereas one in three (32.97%) thought a Boris premiership would be bad for business, with just under a sixth (15.38%) saying he’d be very bad.

Do you think Boris Johnson as PM would be good or bad for your business?

We also asked business owners what they thought was the likeliest Brexit outcome should Boris fill May’s shoes.

One in two (54.95%) believe no-deal Brexit is most likely, with one in three (34.07%) believing it would result in us leaving the EU with a deal.

What do you think is the likeliest result of having Boris as PM?

Finally, we asked business owners what impact they thought a no-deal Brexit would have on their business’s finances.

One in two (48.35%) thought it would have a negative impact, with one in four (26.37%) believing the impact would be positive.

One in five (20.88%) believe a no-deal Brexit would have no effect on their business’s finances.

What impact do you think a no-deal Brexit would have on your business's finances?

What do you think?

What’s your opinion about Boris Johnson becoming prime minister, and the impact this would have on the ongoing Brexit sage? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.

Survey results based on the responses of 91 small business owners and were gathered over the last seven days using SurveyMonkey.
