The order has the legendary regularity of clockwork.

Hunt is bottom of our poll, Javid above him, Gove above him, Raab above him…and Johnson above him.

And every single winner last month has improved his position this month – though in many cases the difference is marginal.

Note again that Raab and Johnson raise the turnout in their contests.

The survey got roughly 1300 responses to each run-off compared to about 1100 last month.

We selected the five for the same reason as last time round – they seemed on balance to be the candidates with the most potential support, if one takes into account MPs as well as activists.

That still holds for MPs as we write, just about, but we are keeping the situation under review.

We can’t say anything in closing we haven’t said elsewhere today: this leadership election is for Johnson to lose – at least if his Parliamentary colleagues forward his name to the members which (we repeat) is far from certain.

210 comments for: Next Tory Leader run-offs. Our panel’s support hasn’t changed. They want Johnson – followed by Raab, Gove, Javid and Hunt in that order.
