Who will win the Contest?
At present, Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt are now in the race for the next PM.
Mr. Johnson has long been the clear favorite in the contest and easily made it to the final two, securing the votes of more than 100 Tory MPs in each round. Last few days his lead is slipping slowly due to Hunt’s commendable speech.
Hunt has a tough time to win the contest which was among the Tory members and the general public. But recently the percentage of winning slowly increased to above 20%.
On 20 June – the public at large preferred Mr. Johnson by 36 percent to Mr. Hunt’s 28 percent. On 22 June, however, Mr. Hunt led by 32 percent to 29 percent. Mr. Johnson retained his lead among Conservative voters, but it fell from 27 points to nine points over the same period.
What is Forex Monetary Policy?
The problem for Mr. Hunt is that Mr. Johnson’s lead is large, especially among the fraction of the electorate that actually gets to decide the outcome of the leadership race.
The former Mayor of London has emerged as the darling of the Tory party membership with 77 percent of them saying he would be a good leader according to the latest polling.
This is a better score than any of the other candidates that made it through to the third round and is 21 points ahead of Mr. Hunt who scored 56 percent.
This would suggest that Mr. Johnson has an excellent chance of winning the contest when the vote goes before the members over the course of the next month.
