OPINION: The phones of National Party MPs will be running hot over the next 10 days as the three leadership contenders battle it out for the numbers to take the top job.

There are three confirmed camps: Camp Collins, Camp Adams and Camp Bridges, and two unconfirmed camps: Camp Joyce and Camp Mitchell.

In order to be chosen as leader, candidates must convince a majority of the 56 National Party MPs to back them in a vote - that's at least 29 supporters.

So, the question is, who has the numbers?

Our Newshub political reporters have nudged sources, staked out Opposition MPs and triangulated the data.

Based on the information we've gathered, these are our best guesses over who has support from who.

Like previous leadership battles, these numbers will change as support solidifies around leading contenders. We will continue updating this document as we get fresh information.

Team Amy Adams........
