A majority of Conservatives support May
YouGov polled Conservative members from July 1-4 and found that Theresa May begins the leadership race as an overwhelming favourite.
- T. May: 54%
- A. Leadsom: 20%
- M. Gove: 9%
- S. Crabb: 5%
- L. Fox: 5%
Between May and Andrea Leadsom, 74% of Conservatives are leaning towards a woman.
We will be paying close attention to May's comments on Brexit in the coming months but we also don't place too much faith in polls. As Conservatives get a closer look at the candidates, the polls could change quickly.
Look at Leadson, just hanging out at a playground.
