A new opinion poll has claimed that 50 percent of voters who support the ruling Conservative Party in Britain believe that Rishi Sunak would make a good prime minister. More than 4400 people were included in the opinion poll conducted by JL Partners.
According to an opinion poll, 48 percent of those who supported the Conservative Party in the 2019 general election believe that Sunak, who is of Indian origin, will prove to be a good prime minister.
This is the first survey in which Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has been placed second in the race for Prime Minister. 39 per cent of those surveyed supported Truss for the Prime Ministership and 22 per cent backed Business Minister Penny Mordot.
The survey comes in the form of a race to choose Boris Johnson’s successor as the next Conservative Party leader with the three main contenders in fourth and fifth place being former Equality Minister Cammy Badenoch and the chairman of Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee Tom Tugendat.
James Johnson, co-founder of JL Partners and a former Downing Street pollster, said the majority of people who had heard of Mordant were neutral. He said Sunak has strong support. Also, one-third of the voters think that if he becomes the Prime Minister, he will prove to be a good Prime Minister.
