Foreign Secretary Liz Truss remains well ahead of her rival Rishi Sunak in the race for the leadership of the Conservative Party and the British Prime Minister, a YouGov poll for Sky News showed today.

The ruling Conservative Party is voting by mail to choose its new leader after Boris Johnson said he would resign following a series of scandals. The winner will be announced on September 5th.

Truss, who is consistently at the top of Conservative Party members’ preferences in opinion polls, leads Sunak by 32 percentage points among those who have decided to vote, the survey showed. Tras collects 66% and Sunak 34%.

According to the poll, only 13% of Conservative Party members are either undecided who they will vote for or will not vote at all.
