Yes – 92 % (11,923)

No – 8% (1,081)

I don’t know – 0 % (69)

The results come after US President Donald Trump said it was a “mistake” not to involve the Brexit Party leader in negotiations.

In his second extraordinary intervention into British politics ahead of this week’s state visit, the Republican firebrand leader said Mr Farage has a “lot to offer” and is someone he likes “a lot”.

Mr Trump told the Sunday Times: “He is a very smart person. They won’t bring him in. Think how well they would do if they did. They just haven’t figured that out yet.”

Mr Farage’s Brexit Party topped a new Opinium poll on who voters would back in a general election with 26 percent.

The brand new party also swept the board in last month’s European elections and they will send 29 MEPs to Brussels.

Meanwhile, Mr Farage accused Downing Street of being “petty” and “small minded” for allegedly banning him from meeting Donald Trump next week.

The Brexit Party leader said Number 10 had told the US president’s team not to meet him during his state visit – a move he branded “absolutely ludicrous”.

Mr Farage said a friend in Washington had informed him that Theresa May’s office had told Mr Trump’s entourage: “Don’t meet this guy.”

He said: “It’s absolutely ludicrous.
