Liz Truss walking away with Tory leadership contest as 68% of voters back her over Rishi

Instead, Tory members still prefer Mr Johnson and would rather he remain in his job. A majority of 55 percent said Tory MPs were wrong to force his resignation, to 40 percent who believed they had done the right thing.

In a three-horse race with Mr Johnson, 46 percent would return him to party leader, compared to just 24 and 23 percent for Ms Truss and Mr Sunak respectively.

Meanwhile, an overwhelming majority believe Mr Johnson could beat Sir Keir Starmer, the Labour leader, in a general election. In 2019, on the back of Brexit, he won an 80-seat majority – the best election result since Margaret Thatcher swept to power forty years prior.
