Two YouGov polls show Boris Johnson way ahead of Osborne. One poll was taken just before Boris came out for Brexit and the second one just afterwards.YouGov says: “For the first time in history, the next Prime Minister will be chosen directly by the Conservative Party membership. YouGov has created a panel of Tory members and is using the same weighting method we employed for our Labour leadership race last summer, which first identified Corbyn’s ascendancy and then accurately predicted the scale of his win.”
“Johnson and Osborne are gainers from Theresa May (down from 21% to 19%) and Sajid Javid (down from 11% to 7%), who both disappointed some of their supporters by staying loyal to the party leadership in spite of having been seen as euro-sceptics. Nicky Morgan is unchanged on 1%. These changes are not mere fluctuations with margins of error as we interviewed the same 1005 members.In a head-to-head contest Johnson currently beats Osborne by 56% to 38%, and Osborne beats May by 46% to 42%. Support is strongly correlated with opinions about Brexit. Tory members support leaving the EU by 59% to 31%, with the numbers for Johnson supporters at 80% to 14% with Osborne supporters showing the reverse preference with 54% wanting to remain in versus 33% who prefer to leave.”
Well done Boris. Democracy and free speech have been his core beliefs his entire life, now he is answering destiny’s call to save the rights of the people for Britain.
