The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) is today releasing a report that brings a level-headedness to the debate that is sorely needed.
Today’s polls reveal some interesting things about the early days of Johnson’s premiership – and hint at the battles to come.
Lessons endure from my polling study of our new Prime Minister, carried out six years ago when he was London’s Mayor.
It found Johnson on 67 per cent, Hunt on 29 per cent and “Other” on four per cent. Our next two surveys were closer to a YouGov poll.
Our survey. Next Tory Leader. Johnson 72 per cent, Hunt 28 per cent. 72 per cent overall have voted. On these figures, Johnson has already won.
If the survey is accurate, it would be reasonable to assume, on the evidence available, that he will gain between 67 per cent and 71 per cent of the vote.
