Conservative leadership vote may be as tightly contested as Brexit vote

Boris Johnson vs Theresa May

A poll, which looks like an online survey, was released from UK website ConservativeHome today and showed a slight lead for Theresa May over Boris Johnson.

It's not clear who will be in the race yet ahead of tomorrow's deadline.

The ConHome poll puts May fractionally ahead of Johnson.

The readership and survey respondents are likely to the right of the general Conservative party membership.

May campaigned on the 'Remain' side so I don't understand how voters expect her to negotiate a Brexit. Or maybe the message is that they want to put the genie back in the bottle.

In any case, Paddy Power puts the leadership race equally tight.
