British Prime Minister Boris Johnson survived a no-confidence vote on Monday after threats to topple him emerged from within his own party.

The under-pressure PM managed to garner the support of 211 out of 359 Conservative lawmakers, or 59% — a percentage lower than Johnson’s predecessor, Theresa May, received after a similar vote in 2018. Just over six months later, she resigned.

The ballot was held anonymously, though many chose to make their feelings known, either by letter or on social media.
