More than a million Londoners look set to protest at Donald Trump’s visit to the UK after a new poll found 13% of the city’s residents are ‘likely’ to join the demonstrations.

A new YouGov/QueenMaryLondon poll, shared with HuffPost UK, found that more than one in 10 of the capital’s 8 million residents were poised to turn out against the U.S. president next month.

The survey also found that one in five (20%) 18-24 year-olds expect to march on the streets during the state visit.

Overall, Londoners of all ages oppose Trump’s trip by a margin of more than two-to-one, with 54% against it and just 24% supporting it.

Trump arrives in the UK on June 3 and his three-day visit will include a banquet at Buckingham Palace, talks with Prime Minister Theresa May in Downing Street and a trip to Portsmouth to mark 75 years since the D-Day landings of World War Two.
