Does the Conservative Party have a problem with entryism? YouGov's @chriscurtis94 takes a look…
Large numbers of those voting haven't been in the party long. One third (34%) of Conservative members have joined the party since the 2017 general election (but longer ago than the 3 month cut-off point for voting eligibility).…
Of this group of recently-joined Conservative members, the single most common motivation for joining (59%) was to be able to vote in the leadership election…
That being said, the voting records of these newly-joined members are still strongly Conservative: 92% voted Tory in 2017, as did 71% in 2015. Only 2% did at the EU elections (but then so did only 22% of all members)…
These newly-joined members are more pro-Boris.: 85% say they will vote for him. But given the membership as a whole backs Boris over Hunt by 74% to 26%, all these new members are doing is shifting the dial, not changing the result…
