Although the campaign emphasizes sunak's "Consistent position", including his earlier advocacy for reasonable tax cuts once inflation is under control, and his refusal to borrow to pay for the cost of tax cuts, his latest political views do have many parallels with his leadership rivals , foreign secretary liz truss echoes each other.
According to information from market research firms such as yougov and bookmakers such as smarkets, truss has a much higher chance of winning the cell numbers list leadership election than sunak. Sunak also admitted to the media recently that he is trying to catch up with the party members' support for truss.
