BBC's Nick Robinson tops Total Politics poll

BBC political editor Nick Robinson tops Total Politics magazine's annual poll for the most influential political journalist, moving up four places from last year.
Second place is taken by BBC Radio 4 Today programme presenter Evan Davis, last year’s number one. Newsnight's inquisitor-in-chief Jeremy Paxman is third. Adam Boulton of Sky News is fourth and Eddie Mair of BBC Radio 4's PM is fifth.
The highest ranked political print journalist is Quentin Letts, the Daily Mail's Parliamentary sketch writer who comes in eighth.
BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg is voted the favourite among Tory MPs, while Labour MPs favour Michael White from the Guardian.
Paul Waugh from the Evening Standard was the biggest mover – not appearing in the top 100 last year but ranked 32 this year
Mayor of London Boris Johnson dropped 31 places, despite still penning his Daily Telegraph column.
The list of the top 100 political journalists appears in the latest issue of Total Politics out this week.
