How humiliating for the Conservative leadership pretenders – a new poll has shown that a majority of voters don’t want any of the possible candidates to succeed her taking the role.

A massive 57 per cent of those asked in the BMG/Independent poll published on February 9 wanted none of the candidates suggested to them.

Top of the named candidates was Boris Johnson, with a pathetic 13 per cent, then there was another vertiginous drop to Jacob Rees-Mogg’s total of a mere seven per cent. Philip Hammond, Ruth Davidson, Amber Rudd and David Davis are hardly worth mentioning, mustering a minute 17 per cent between them

Worse still, the Independent reports that although nobody wants any of the Conservative Party to replace her, Mrs May’s leadership is positively hated by the general public.

The paper reports that “more than half of voters (51 per cent) say they are dissatisfied with Ms May’s leadership, with only 33 per cent happy with her performance”.

That being said, note how the Independent reported the results of its poll. The headline read: “Jacob Rees-Mogg is second favourite to succeed Theresa May if she is forced out, exclusive new poll reveals.” He had just seven per cent of the vote but the paper had the nerve to suggest that “Men and voters over the age of 55 are warming towards the darling of the Tory right”.
