    This is pretty damning. Bear in mind Ed Miliband had 20% and that was deemed very low. In addition, two thirds of Tory voters said they didn't think he would be a good PM.

    Surely his chances of becoming PM are diminishing.

    That's one damning statistic!

    With that being said, with Cameron out of the way, and a victory for the In Campaign on June 23rd, I imagine that those approval ratings would probably improve somewhat.

    Either way - it would be a disaster for the country! A PM called Gideons? Eek!

    It's not like the other Conservative options touted as potential PMs are up to much.

    Thatcher would be rolling in her grave if she knew how poor her successors were.

    That's because 92% of people don't even think he's a good M.

    George Osborne gives support to the people who need it (bankers and the well off) and takes it away from those who don't need it (the disabled, homeless and fuel poor households).

    I think George Osborne would make a great Prime Minister ....................

    No charmisa, not going to be a PM and he just hasn't the character to represent us on the world stage. Of all the things I could say about May she probably isn't going to get bullied into some crap deal for Britain.

    Indeed but only because he's beatable whereas the British public will fall head over heels for comedy Boris without realising just how right wing he is.

    Chancellors are famous but unknown. The only times people really see or hear them is when delivering a budget - hardly a recipe for charismatic leader.

    I'm not sure he will end up as PM, but I don't think those numbers really mean much.

    I'm in the two thirds lol. He has an awful persona and the most successful Tories currently are the ones who haven't been well known.

    Praying for the next Tory leader to be someone like Penny Mordaunt

    He blew his chances when he was appointed Chancellor.

    We all know what happens to ex-chancellors becoming PMs...

    Hmm...

    While I think John Major's a great guy he was pretty sh*t.

    These things change so often.

    Back in June, apparently Osborne was practically assured of being the next leader, and there were articles mocking how Boris Johnson was excluded and unimpressive in the House of Commons.

    That said, Osborne has never been popular with the British public at large. I was slightly surprised that he was ever considered a good choice for Tory leader, but his reputation did seem slightly better just after the 2015 election.
