Professor Tim Bale from Queen Mary University of London notes that members who support leaving the EU are twice as likely to favor Suella Braverman for leadership, with a 20% to 9% split, compared to those who support remaining. Kemi Badenoch also sees higher support from the Leave camp, though the gap is narrower at 33% versus 28%.

"Conversely, Tom Tugendhat appears to be more favored by Remainers, with a count of 18 compared to 11."

Ms. Braverman enjoys greater backing from working-class Conservative members than from their middle-class counterparts, a contrast to Ms. Badenoch and Mr. Tugendhat, who are more favored by the middle-class.

Ms. Badenoch and Ms. Braverman are poised to garner the support of previous backers of Liz Truss, whereas Mr. Tugendhat is favored by individuals who previously saw Rishi Sunak as the ideal leader in 2022.
