Liz Truss has topped a league table of best-performing cabinet ministers - as voted for by Tory members.
The international trade secretary received an 85% favorability rating in the Conservative Home polling - up ten points compared to a month ago.
She is ahead of chancellor Rishi Sunak - only 80% of support - and foreign secretary Dominic Raab - on 68% of support.
Boris Johnson comes in ninth place with just 47% of support - behind defence secretary Ben Wallace, chief secretary to the Treasury Steve Barclay, home secretary Priti Patel, cabinet office minister Michael Gove, and leader of the Commons Jacob Rees-Mogg.
The prime minister's support is, however, a 44 point jump in support after languishing behind his colleagues during the coronavirus pandemic.
Matt Hancock has just 17% favorability - behind the likes of Grant Shapps, Therese Coffey, Suella Bravermann and Alok Sharma.
