Apparently, Andrea Leadsom only has the declared support of two MPs in the 2019 Conservative leadership contest, herself and Heather Wheeler. In contrast, Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Jeremy Hunt, or Dominic Raab all have at least two dozen supporters (each) among MPs.
I thought she has enough name recognition to place better... E.g. according to The Express:
Mrs Leadsom was a prominent member of the Leave campaign during the 2016 EU referendum.
She is a key Brexit campaigner and spoke with conviction during EU referendum debates.
Also Leadsom was a finalist with May in the 2016 leadership contest although she quit after her remarks on May's lack of children. Some commentators said that Leadsom ended up unexpectedly in that final contest, because Gove turned on Johnson. Nevertheless, Leadsom did a lot better in 2016 than this year.
So why is Leadsom so unpopular in the 2019 leadership contest?
