A majority of Conservative party members now want Liz Truss gone, a new poll has shown. Meanwhile, the top six favourites to replace the Prime Minister have been revealed. A new YouGov poll has found that 55 percent of Conservative Party members think Liz Truss should resign.

The survey, which spoke to 530 Conservative Party members between October 17 and October 18, saw 60 percent of them say they would support a “coronation” of Ms Truss’ successor, rather than a vote of members.

The poll showed that the favourite to succeed Ms Truss is former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, with 32 percent of the members polled lending him their support.

Rishi Sunak had the second most support, with 23 percent of members backing the former Chancellor.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace was on 10 percent support, while former leadership candidate Penny Mordaunt had 9 percent.

Kemi Badenoch took 8 percent support from the party members, while Chancellor Jeremy Hunt was on 7 percent.
