Boris Johnson is more popular than Rishi Sunak according to a new survey.

The Prime Minister fell short of the top spot, beaten by both his predecessor Boris Johnson and his Home Secretary, Suella Braverman.

In the survey run by Conservative Home, Ben Wallace finished comfortably in first place, followed by Kemi Badenoch.

Suella Braverman came third, followed by Boris Johnson and then Rishi Sunak.

The survey panel consisted of more than 3,300 party members.

Paul Goodman noted: “It’s a tribute of a kind to the topsy-turvy nature of 2022 that Johnson, Truss and Sunak were all eligible to be both Minister of the Year and Backbencher of the Year”.

Suella Braverman came third, followed by Boris Johnson and then Rishi Sunak.

Nadine Dorries told Dan Wootton on GB News that Johnson’s political career is not over yet and said he would “be back”.

She said: “It’s not just me. I can assure you my phone is full of messages that he will be back.

“When you’ve got somebody who has his uniqueness, his appeal, his level of genius, you’re not going to get a male, stale and pale individual.

“I definitely think one day Boris Johnson will be back.”

Earlier this year, Boris Johnson announced that he will stand again as an MP at the next general election.

He has been an MP in the west London constituency of Uxbridge and South Ruislip since 2015, winning it with a majority of 5,034 in 2017 and 7,210 in 2019, by which time he was prime minister.

It has been a Tory seat since its creation in 2010.
