Boris Johnson has support of two thirds of Tory voters for leadership, says poll

Source: The Guardian

Tory voters now back Boris Johnson over Jeremy Hunt to be the next Conservative party leader and prime minister by a margin of almost two to one, according to a new Opinium/Observer poll.

Some 53% of those questioned, and who voted Conservative at the 2017 general election, say they would cast a vote for Johnson, against 29% who would choose Hunt.

Johnson is seen as the best choice for prime minister by 47% of Tory supporters, against 25% for Hunt, and as most likely to beat Jeremy Corbyn at the next election by 61% compared with 19% who choose Hunt.

The survey confirms Johnson as the hot favourite to succeed Theresa May when the result of the ballot now taking place among 160,000 Tory party members is announced on 22 July.

2. UK Tories are just as brainwashed in right-wing dogma as US ReThugs....

and many I've read about show psychopathic tendencies just like our guys.

Reagan and Thatcher are their gods, with a side helping of Ayn Rand.

Now if we can just somehow strip them all of their plutocratic financial backing, all would be well on both sides of the pond.

KY.......... ..........

9. I blame the overwhelming majority that never bother to vote

They allow a passionate minority to rule over us all, and then complain about how the minority party isn't doing enough to stop the shitshow.
