RISHI Sunak has plummeted in popularity among Tory members after just over a month in Number Ten, with the Cabinet also recording a "record low" according to a new survey.

A poll carried out by website Conservative Home found the Prime Minister has dropped from fifth place to sixth from bottom in the rankings of 31 ministers.

Sunak scored just nine points compared to a rating of 49.9 the month before in the survey of a panel of Conservative members carried out in November.

Chancellor Jeremy Hunt scored even lower, sitting at second bottom of the league table with a rating of minus 9.9.

Only Immigration Minister Robert Jenrick is more unpopular scoring minus 25.4.

At the top of the rankings are Defence Secretary Ben Wallace, International Trade Secretary Kemi Badenoch and Foreign Secretary James Cleverly, the only ministers to score more than 50 points.

Paul Goodman, editor of Conservative Home, noted the average score in this month’s Cabinet League Table is 21.7 - excluding Scottish Tory leader Douglas Ross and Welsh Tory leader Andrew RT Davies, who score 11.9 and 20.9 respectively.

He added: “I wondered whether this was a record recent low, and if so by how much.

“The average in September, the only month in which the survey was issued during Liz Truss’s brief term as Prime Minister, was 23.7. In August, the last month of Boris Johnson’s premiership, it was the same.

“So, yes, it’s a record recent low, but not by much. The panel has clearly felt that the Government, in its various manifestations, has not been performing well for some time.”

He added: “This is an unhappy panel. And in case you were wondering, the average score in the first Cabinet of Johnson’s premiership in our table was 57.4.”
