Boris Johnson’s popularity ratings have taken a blow since it emerged police had been called to the home he shares with his partner Carrie Symonds, according to a new poll.

Support for the ex-Cabinet minister reportedly dropped sharply after news of the police involvement became public.

The day before the police involvement, a Survation poll for the Mail on Sunday gave Mr Johnson an eight-point lead over rival for the Tory crown Jeremy Hunt among all voters – but he had dropped three points behind the Foreign Secretary on Saturday.

Among Tory voters, Mr Johnson’s lead when asked who would make the best prime minister had slumped from 27% to 11% in the same period.

When Survation carried out their poll on Thursday, it found that among all voters 36% said Mr Johnson would make the best PM, with 28% backing Mr Hunt.
