Come What May - Theresa "Most Favourable" of Conservative Leadership Contenders (Survation)

Theresa May continues to be the most favourable candidate in the race to be the new Conservative Leader according to a new poll by Survation on behalf of the Constitutional Research Council.

In keeping with recent online polling by Survation on behalf of the Mail on Sunday, our latest telephone poll shows May as the only one of the five Conservative Leadership candidates with a significant positive favourability rating (+29) among the general public. Andrea Leadsom was the only other candidate with positive favourability (+0.5), although two-in-five people told us that they hadn’t heard of her.

Further details and analysis of this poll can be found here.

Survation interviewed 1,008 UK adults aged 18+ between 4th - 5th July 2016, before Liam Fox was eliminated and Stephen Crabb dropped out of the race on Tuesday evening. Full data tables are available here.
