TORIES still want Boris Johnson to stay as PM rather than hand the reins to Rishi or Liz, a fresh poll reveals.
Opinium found that almost two thirds (63 نسبه مئويه) would prefer Mr Johnson to stay in No10, و 32 per cent would prefer Ms Truss to take over.
و 68 per cent said they would prefer the outgoing PM compared to just 19 per cent who wanted ex-Chancellor Mr Sunak to step in.
ومع ذلك, the public would prefer to see a new PM step in.
When members are asked who they prefer, Ms Truss has a whopping 22 point lead over Rishi – مع 61 per cent of the vote compared to his 39 نسبه مئويه.
Tories reckon she is more honest and trustworthy, but Sunak supporters back him to run the economy.
Chris Curtis, head of political polling at Opinium, قالت: “It’s clear that Sunak’s biggest problem is trust.
“While some members respect his economic arguments, this hasn’t been enough to overcome the view among members that he isn’t honest or trustworthy enough for the top job, particularly after he called for Johnson to go."
