Adam Drummond, lawyer director in Opinium said way in what Tory voters are now rated Liz Truss via series of positive qualities wereup on double numerical amounts.
Tory voters think they more most likely win in next elections with Farm than Sunak and when two candidates are put in head-to-head match-UPS against Keir Starmer of all voters, Sunak is 4 behind (essentially the same as Boris Johnson) and Truss leads by 1 though real winner in all of these head-to the heads of these’, that is higher than any individual candidate,” he said.
