"I've spoken to him directly and he's told me he supports Malcolm Turnbull", Pyne said.
Under headlines such as "PM's leadership on knife edge" major papers said some government members were gauging support for Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton to replace Turnbull.
In a vote carried out this morning, Mr Turnbull won the challenge to decide the leadership of the Liberal Party and the government 48 votes to 35, after earlier declaring the Liberal leadership vacant.
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Mr Turnbull was paying the price for making policy on the fly.
Dutton put his hand up to challenge Turnbull for the top job after the PM's risky move to take control of the party.
"That is what people are telling me and that is what the government wants to do", he said.
The leadership talk was fueled by an Ipsos poll published in Fairfax newspapers, which showed support for Turnbull's Liberal-National coalition falling four points to 45 percent, 10 points behind opposition party Labor and enough for a crushing electoral defeat.
Mr Pyne described his Liberal colleagues stoking leadership tensions as "cowards".
