May’s rating hits record low

Theresa May

Theresa May’s rating has plunged to the worst on record for a prime minister in the weeks after an election, according to pollsters.
Labour is also one point ahead in the polls on 42% compared to 41% for the Conservatives, Ipsos Mori found.
After riding on a historic high at the start of the general election campaign, the PM has hit an unprecedented low.
But while opponent Jeremy Corbyn’s rating continues to improve, May is still regarded as the most capable leader.
The study found 34% of voters said they were satisfied with the Prime Minister’s performance, down nine points from last month and 22 points from April, when she called the election.
Some 59% are dissatisfied with May, leaving her overall rating on minus 25, the worst score Ipsos Mori has recorded for a prime minister in the month after a general election.
Corbyn’s ratings were up five points from June with 44% satisfied while 45% were dissatisfied leaving the Labour leader with a net satisfaction score of minus one. PA
