Rishi Sunak losing UK PM race, trails Truss by 32 points
Liz Truss led Rishi Sunak by 32 points in the latest survey of UK Tory members by the ConservativeHome website, suggesting she remains on track to win the race to succeed Boris Johnson as prime minister, Bloomberg reported.
Some 60% of the 961 Tory members polled by the influential website said they favored Truss to become the Conservative Party’s new leader, while just 28% backed Sunak, ConservativeHome said on Wednesday. The result is due on September 5, with the winner taking over from Johnson the following day.
ConservativeHome found that just 9% of those surveyed remain undecided. Some 60% said they had already voted, while 40% haven’t.
