According to surveys, Conservative members of the party who will choose the party’s future leader, and therefore the next prime minister, favor Liz Truss above Rishi Sunak.
The Legislative Conservative Party spent the following two weeks narrowing the field of 12 contenders to just two.
Now that the party’s elite has chosen their two favorites, the option of which one will become a leader has been given to the party’s roughly 180,000 supporters across the nation.
The Final Answer is Coming
By September 5th, it is anticipated that the election will be over and a new leader will be prepared to take over.
Rishi Sunak, the former Chancellor of the Exchequer and right-hand man of Boris Johnson who became a political executioner, is by far the favorite of that parliament’s aristocracy.
He has won every round of voting among many MPs, but according to a poll, Liz Truss is the favorite to win the members’ vote in the end.
The data from YouGov suggest Truss will win the Conservative leadership contest of 2019 with 62% of the vote against Sunak’s 38%.
This is very close to the majority Boris Johnson achieved when he competed against soggy Remain supporter Jeremy Hunt.

There are still a lot of votes to be gained in the election, according to the number.
It eliminates those who now say they just wouldn’t participate at all and 15% of those who now classify as do-not-understand.
These results are similar to polls from earlier in the race, which predicted, if Truss and Sunak advanced to the second rounds, as they have already, Truss would win 54% to Sunak’s 35%.
However, there is further terrible news for Sunak in the polls: if the results are accurate for the entire electorate, Conservative members are much more inclined than their rivals to believe Truss will make a competent leader.
According to 23% of those surveyed, Truss would be a “very excellent” leader, while Sunak would have been a “very terrible” leader, according to the same percentage.
Overall, 62% of respondents thought highly of Truss’s ability to lead, compared to 50% for Sunak.

Additionally, there was a difference in how people perceived honesty: 63% said they could trust Truss, as opposed to 48% for Sunak.
However, just Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak being the only two options available to Conservative members inside the UK does not imply these were the candidates the Conservatives hoped for.
Indeed, according to polls, Kemi Badenoch and Penny Mordaunt were the two candidates who Tories most wanted to see compete in the decisive round, each receiving 24% of the vote.
Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss only scored 13 and 11 points, however. According to a poll taken earlier this week, if Kemi Badenoch advanced to the final, she would’ve defeated Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss.This article appeared in Powerhouse News and has been published here with permission.
