Who do you think’s the best political journalist in Britain?

That’s the question Total Politics put to journalists, MPs and the magazine’s Facebook fans – and below, courtesy of The Guardian’s Politics Blog, are the top 20.

As ever with such lists, there are some curiosities – for example, that neither Andrew Neill nor Matthew D’Ancona make it into the premiership. And, personally, I’m a fan of Philip Stephens in the FT. Who do you think’s missing, or been over-promoted?

1. Evan Davis
2. Jeremy Paxman
3. Matthew Parris
4. Nick Robinson
5. John Humphrys
6. Martha Kearney
7. Andrew Marr
8. Andrew Rawnsley
9. Trevor Kavanagh
10. Peter Riddell
11. Quentin Letts
12. Polly Toynbee
13. Adam Boulton
14. Simon Hoggart
15. David Dimbleby
16. Michael White
17. Gavin Esler
18. Simon Walters
19. Jonathan Dimbleby
20. Jeremy Vine
