Clarke kicked out

The results from the first round of the MPs' ballot for the Tory leadership:

David Davis 62
David Cameron 56
Liam Fox 42
Kenneth Clarke 38

I am reminded of the exchange from Bremner, Bird & Fortune:
Interviewer: Kenneth Clarke is the most popular Conservative.
George Parr [Tory] MP: Yes, but only with the electorate.
