Digital Desk, New Delhi. Indian-origin Rishi Sunak, who has been leading the race to become the Prime Minister of Britain, is now seen to be lagging behind in a survey. Let us tell you that in the ‘YouGov’ survey, UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has overtaken Sunak in the race for the post of PM. In the poll, Liz got 28 more votes than Sunak. Earlier on Thursday, members of the Conservative Party voted to send him to the last step of becoming prime minister.
According to Sky News, among men and women and among those who voted for Brexit, in each age group, Truss has received more votes than Sunak. According to the survey, Sunak has defeated Truss in the only category of voters in 2016.

At the same time, 38 percent of the members will choose Rishi Sunak of Indian origin. These do not include those who said they would not vote or did not know.
