Our monthly surveys of Party members improved for David Cameron during the summer. They showed a rise in the proportion of respondents wanting him to lead the Party into the next election, and expecting him to be Prime Minister after it takes place.
This month’s shows no significant change, The percentage of members expecting him to be Prime Minister after 2015 has dropped by three points from 67 per cent to 64 per cent. The proportion of those who want him to lead the Party into the next election has risen by five from 66 per cent to 71 per cent.
36 per cent of respondents are either broadly or completely supportive of forming a second coalition with the Liberal Democrats if Cameron fails to win a majority: 52 per cent say the opposite. Last month, those figures were 34 per cent and 53 per cent.
23 per cent back Boris to be the next leader of the Party, 20 per cent Michael Gove, 17 per cent Theresa May and 16.5 per cent William Hague. Those figures were respectively 24 per cent, 22 per cent, 17 per cent and 13 per cent last month. Remember: that’s after Cameron, not instead of Cameron.
