Boris Johnson leads 92 Group Hustings’ non-binding vote to gauge candidates support

The right-wing Tories, 92 Group Hustings, recently held non-binding votes to gauge the popularity of the UK’s 10 Prime Minister candidates and the outcome is no different than general market consensus that favors ex-Foreign Minister Boris Johnson to become the next PM. Dominic Raab and Michael Gove were also in the line but the Brexit hardliner is on the top.

Following are the result of the polls:

  1. Boris Johnson: 34
  2. Dominic Raab: 18
  3. Michael Gove: 6
  4. Esther McVey: 6
  5. Mark Harper: 5
  6. Sajid Javid: 5
  7. Jeremy Hunt: 2
  8. Andrea Leadsom: 2
  9. Matt Hancock: 0
  10. Rory Stewart: 0

With the pro-Brexit leader the command, the EU might find it hard to agree over the deal, which in turn increases the chances of hard Brexit.
