David Cameron today insisted George Osborne would not be moved on in any cabinet reshuffle.
The Prime Minister said the Chancellor was "doing an excellent job" and was "not going anywhere".
Speaking to Sky News, he said he would not be drawn into "reshuffle bingo" over the position of Mr Osborne or Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt, whom he praised for the smooth running of the Olympics.
"George Osborne is doing an excellent job in very difficult circumstances and he has my full support in going on and doing that job. He’s not going anywhere," he said.
"If you’re going to try and go through sort of, reshuffle bingo I’m going to leave it at that."
A YouGov poll for the Sun found Tory support would rise 3% to 37% in the event of a change in leadership, while Labour’s support would drop from 40% to 38%.
