Then come Redwood and Tugendhat to make up the top five. Four of the top ten have been in the Commons for less than three years.

Our snap survey. Seven out of ten party members think May was right to agree last week’s Brexit deal
Perhaps while Party members don’t like elements of the deal very much, their main emotional reaction to it is simply relief that trade talks are set to begin.
It’s just that single question, but we believe our Panel members will appreciate the opportunity to express a view.
And after hitting a personal low last month, the Budget seems to have got the Chancellor (just) back into the membership’s good books.
Jo Johnson is third. Then Greg Hands and Matt Hancock. But those who lead the results may be no less likely to go up than those who trail them.
The proportion believing that she should quit before it happens remains stubbornly stuck at just under two in three of them.
Next Tory leader. Our survey. Rees-Mogg leads, Gove is second – and none of the above still beats the lot
Add together the totals of those named who backed Brexit, and one reaches a total of nearly 60 per cent of the vote.
A full third of replies either believe that Britain should pay the EU “not a penny” or that “it should be paying us”. Just over one in ten of respondents took the latter view.
We have special questions on how much money, if any, Britain should pay the EU as part of Brexit settlement. And on which senior Ministers should be promoted to the Cabinet.
Party member opinion on the negotiations is clearly at the harder end of the spectrum on independence and economics – though not invariably on immigration.
It’s personal low in the run-up to the Budget. Meanwhile, Gove gets within a single point of beating Davidson for the top spot.
“None of the above” has the best part of a quarter of the vote. In the surveys since the election, it has successively come first, first, second, second – and now first again.
As well as our regular monthly questions, we seek participants’ views on the question of suspending Brexit negotiations in favour of an exit on WTO terms.
Nearly nine in ten Party members say Britain must be able to sign trade deals during any Brexit deal implementation period.
Some people believe that it doesn’t matter if we stay in the EU de facto during such a time. This is not the view of ConHome’s respondents.
Johnson leads our Next Tory Leader category…but makes no progress in our Cabinet League Table. The reason? He divides opinion.
Davis, Gove, and Fallon make up the top three again, but satisfaction levels overall are low. And Davidson is out-polling every Cabinet member.
