Nicola Sturgeon has topped a Press Gazette reader poll asking which high-profile politician had been the most impressive during the Covid-19 crisis.
Just under 2,700 people responded to the poll, which ran in articles on Press Gazette’s website from 13-18 May 2020.
The Scottish First Minister and leader of the SNP took 29% of the vote, equal to 776 votes.
She was followed by Chancellor Rishi Sunak (24% – 636) and newly elected Labour leader Keir Starmer (23% – 606).
Just 14 per cent of respondents ( 384) voted for Prime Minister Boris Johnson, while 3% (86) said Health Secretary Matt Hancock. Foreign minister Dominic Raab took just under 3% with 67 votes.
Some 5% of readers selected “other”.
