According to the report, Truss, who has often come out on top in polls of Conservative Party members, leads Sunak by 32 percentage points among those who plan to cast a ballot. Sunak had 34%, whereas Truss had 66%.
According to the survey, only 13% of respondents said they would either not make a decision or not vote at all.
