Tory-Mitglieder ziehen es immer noch vor, dass Johnson bleibt, anstatt Liz oder Rishi zu wählen

TORIES still want Boris Johnson to stay as PM rather than hand the reins to Rishi or Liz, a fresh poll reveals.

Head-to-head research shows grumpy Tory card-carriers are still cross at the plot to oust him from power and wish he could stay in post, just weeks before he officially quits Downing Street.

Opinium found that almost two thirds (63 Prozent) would prefer Mr Johnson to stay in No10, und 32 per cent would prefer Ms Truss to take over.

Und 68 per cent said they would prefer the outgoing PM compared to just 19 per cent who wanted ex-Chancellor Herr Sunak to step in.

jedoch, the public would prefer to see a new PM step in.

When members are asked who they prefer, Frau Truss has a whopping 22 point lead over Rishi – mit 61 per cent of the vote compared to his 39 Prozent.

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, sagte: “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.”
