Boris Johnson leads the way to replace Liz Truss as Prime Minister among 2019 Conservative voters and leavers, according to a GB News People’s Poll.

The poll asked a total of 1,237 people: “If Liz Truss should be replaced as the leader for the Conservative Party today, who would you like to see as her?”

Results were broken down by gender, age, social grade, region, who they voted from in the 2019 general election and what they voted for during the Brexit Referendum in 2016.

Rishi Sunak currently leads Boris Johnson in the wider country, with 19 percent of voters favouring the former Chancellor compared to 16 percent siding with Mr Johnson.

But for those who voted Conservative at the 2019 general election, Mr Johnson is ahead.

The poll found that 38 percent of those who voted Tory want the former Prime Minister to replace Ms Truss.

That’s compared to 20 percent of 2019 Conservatives who favour Rishi Sunak and eight percent who want Penny Mordaunt as leader.

Mr Johnson is also ahead when it comes to those who voted Leave in 2016, with 29 percent of them choosing him compared to 20 percent wanting Mr Sunak.

Out of the people who chose a party they would vote for if there were to be a general election tomorrow, 53 percent said they would vote Labour.

The Conservative Party’s share of 14 percent in the vote is the lowest in modern British history.

When asked about what comes first to their minds when thinking about the Government, the word “shambles” was the most common answer.

The terms “useless", "incompetent", "chaos" and rubbish” were also among the top five most commons answers.
