SATISFACTION WITH CAMERON’S LEADERSHIP
There are concerns about policy direction but 82% of Tory members are either very satisfied or fairly satisfied with his leadership of the Conservative Party. Only 16% are in some way dissatisfied. We’ll be publishing a tracker poll on the extent to which these satisfaction ratings rise or fall each and every month of David Cameron’s leadership.
TORY PARTY IS ON THE RIGHT COURSE
76% of party members currently think that the Conservative Party is on the right course. Only 17% think it is on the wrong track.
Buoyed by progress in the opinion polls 77% of Tory members expect Mr Cameron to be Prime Minister after the next General Election. 17%, however, think it unlikely that ‘David and Samantha’ will be the residents of Number Ten Downing Street after polling day. The overall grassroots optimism represents an enormous turnaround in the hopes of Tory members since Michael Howard passed the crown to his protege.
EXTENT OF MODERNISATION
Most members think that the process of modernisation in the Conservative Party has some way still to go. 38% think it has a "long way" to go and 28% think it has a "little way" to go. 12% think it is pretty much in the right place. 14% think modernisation has already gone a "little too far". 6% told ConservativeHome that it had gone "much too far".
