YouGov found striking evidence that Tory prospects would be enhanced with Mr Johnson as leader. With Mr Cameron at the helm, Labour would win a majority of 92 seats today. But if the London Mayor led his party, Labour’s majority would be cut to just eight seats – almost a hung parliament. Under Mr Johnson, the Tories would win 1.5m more votes than under Mr Cameron, saving the two-thirds of the seats they would otherwise.
