This is our final survey before the election – so our next update could contain some new faces.

May and Davis top the Cabinet again; Davidson’s back in first place; and Truss slumps to a serious negative score.
On the eve of our conference, it’s clear that the Labour Party and the Welsh nationalists have yet to wake up to last June’s result.
The Prime Minister records her second-best ever result in our table, whilst the Communities Secretary becomes the first to record a negative score.
Theresa May and David Davis hold their ground whilst their colleagues nearly all suffer falling scores, and the Chancellor knocks Ruth Davidson out of the top three!
Theresa May is in second place and Ruth Davidson third, whilst the overall rise in positive ratings we noted last month is sustained.
Theresa May edges out Ruth Davidson for the top spot for only the second time, and there is a general rise in positive feeling about most ministers.
Meanwhile, Amber Rudd has fallen right to the bottom after trouble with the Child Sex Abuse scandal and her retreat on counting foreign workers.
The Chancellor’s position recovers despite his advocacy of the Single Market, whilst the Home Secretary falls from 11th to 23rd.
The drop is best explained by the Chancellor’s well-reported stress on a Brexit settlement as close to single market membership as can be found.
Our Party member readers give the new top team an emphatic vote of confidence.
Also: GMB claim SNP demand for Trident removal is election stunt; Cairns sets out conditions for UK Tata bailout, Stormont divisions over EU; and more.
Also: SNP under unprecedented pressure over bridge closure; Foster set for coronation as DUP leader and First Minister; UKIP on the rise in Wales as Labour fall back; and more.
Another region, another strong Conservative result against a mismanaged Labour campaign plagued by local miseries.
Plus the Deputy Speaker election. Alun Cairns & Damian McBride. And: has Adam Afriyie lost his marbles?
