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.
Davis, Gove, and Fallon make up the top three again, but satisfaction levels overall are low. And Davidson is out-polling every Cabinet member.
“Other” is second, Rees-Mogg third, and Davis fourth. The shape of the results is very similar to that of a recent YouGov poll.
That’s a slight movement against the Prime Minister staying on as Party leader (and in office).
Eight in ten respondents agreed with the thrust of the Foreign Secretary’s case. But the Prime Minister’s speech met with more unhappiness than positivity.
Plus our usual questions: plenty to think about as Party Conference looms.
Members seem to agree that the Prime Minister has staged a mild recovery over the summer.
In the absence of anyone that party members find convincing, he is the beneficiary of a protest vote – boosted by an element of media hype.
This finding will do nothing to help her, given that she spoke to the contrary last week – a mistake, in our view.
There will be speculation about Cabinet differences until there is a common position. At any rate, the activists’ consensus is unambiguous.
There’s a new name on the list of potential next Tory leaders.
Davis leads with less than a fifth of the vote. Johnson is on his lowest total ever. And if one counts write-ins, in second place is…Rees-Mogg.
These results are part of a pattern in this survey of a small uptick in Party morale and expectation.
Rudd falls with him, May is almost out of negative territory…and Davidson continues to soar up, up and away.
The proportion of those suggesting that she shouldn’t quit as Party leader before the next election rises to over a third.
