Rishi Sunak’s popularity hits all-time low among Tory grassroots

Rishi Sunak’s popularity has hit an all-time low among the Conservative Party grassroots, new figures suggest.

In this month’s ranking of Cabinet ministers by ConservativeHome, the Tory news and opinion website, Mr Sunak’s net approval rating has plummeted from 7.1 to minus 25.4, his lowest ever score.

The Prime Minister is less popular than the entirety of his Cabinet in the wake of multiple attempted resets at his party conference, the King’s Speech and the Autumn Statement which appear to have failed to shift the dial, as well as last month’s blow to his flagship Rwanda policy.

James Cleverly tumbled from top of the table on 72 points to eleventh from bottom on 10.6 after just weeks in his new role as Home Secretary.

Mr Cleverly faced a backlash after claiming the Rwanda scheme is “not the be all and end all” after it was blocked by the Supreme Court. The Government is soon expected to unveil emergency legislation which is aimed at ensuring deportation flights can go ahead, while a new treaty with Rwanda will be signed as early as this week.

Elsewhere in the table, Lord Cameron, who has returned to frontline politics as Foreign Secretary, has a net score of minus 4.9, while Esther McVey, who has been dubbed the “minister for common sense” and will oversee an ‘anti-woke’ push in her Cabinet Office position, debuts in joint fourth place at 31.2.
