Boris Johnson tipped to bounce back and win vote of no confidence by GB News viewers
More than 4,000 people cast their vote following Sir Graham Brady's announcement that a vote of no confidence will take place this evening
A GB News poll which ran at 8.27am on Twitter this morning revealed the majority of people believe Boris Johnson will bounce back, following a vote of no confidence this evening.
Over 4,000 people cast their vote shortly after the announcement of a vote of no confidence from Chair of the 1922 Committee Sir Graham Brady.
The vote, which will be a secret ballot, will take place at Westminster on Monday 6 June between 6pm and 8pm, with the count to take place immediately afterwards.
It comes after a steady stream of Conservative MPs called publicly for the Prime Minister to resign in the wake of Sue Gray’s report into breaches of the Covid regulations in No 10 and Whitehall.
If Mr Johnson succeeds in the vote, his leadership will be safer from another vote for a year, but if he loses or resigns, the next steps would be a leadership contest within the Conservative Party.
Tory MPs Lizz Truss and Jeremy Hunt are at the forefront of discussions for who will take over the role of Prime Minister.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid is another who might run.
From outside the Cabinet, Tom Tugendhat, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, is expected to run too.
The poll attracted comments from Twitter users who expressed their opinions regarding the announcement this morning.
Twitter user Ray Atkinson said: "He'll survive but I don't think it will be a bounce back.
"I think it will prolong the slow death of the Prime Minister."
User Benjy Stephens agrees stating: "He’ll survive the vote but there’s no chance him resigning.
"They’ll have to drag him out kicking and screaming.
"He’ll call an election before they call another VONC."
One user Mark Doodson remains faithful, stating: "Look what our Prime Minister has done since taking office.
"Got us through Covid and is the only leader around the world who is 100 percent behind Ukraine."
A result from the vote of no confidence is expected later this evening.
