Prime Minister Liz Truss is under pressure. Trust within their own ranks seems to have been lost, as a survey now shows. The majority of Tory members even want Boris Johnson back.

The end of Liz Truss as British Prime Minister seems almost inevitable. Although Truss has not even been in office for six weeks, she already lacks the support of her party. A YouGov poll of Tory members relentlessly reveals the consequences of the past few days of chaos.

According to Sky information, 55 percent of those surveyed would now vote for Rishi Sunak, who was inferior at the time, while Truss would only receive 25 percent of the votes.

For the current prime minister, however, it gets even worse: 55 percent of the members would apparently welcome her resignation. And a full 63 percent of those surveyed see a good successor in former Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Even the former loser Sunak is preferred by 60 percent of the participants.

The survey took place between October 17th and 18th. Exactly one day after the new British Treasury Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, announced that he would drop the tax plans.

Truss apologized for the first time on Monday evening for the turbulence caused by her economic policy. “I want to take responsibility and apologize for the mistakes that have been made,” she said in a BBC interview.
