I recall reading on CNN about a complaint by an MP (who was possibly a Mordaunt supporter) along the lines that the Conservatives have already lost the next general election given the leadership choice narrowing to Sunak or Truss. I wonder if there's any factual basis to that claim or is just sour grapes.
I do recall that the British opinion pollsters like to ask head-to-head questions whom the electorate would prefer as PM across parties (and that e.g. Corbyn was surpassed by Boris Johnson on that kind of question in the run up to the previous election). So, have any such polls been conducted and published already in the present circumstances, i.e. whether the general public sees Sunak or Truss as less preferable than Keir Starmer as PM? (Of course, things can change by the next election. I'm just wondering if the complaint mentioned in the previous para is somehow based on some present poll data like that.)
