The Tories suffered a disastrous set of general election results on June 8 as the party lost its majority with Mrs May forced to pursue a deal with the Democratic Unionist Party to prop up her minority government.
Now a new survey suggests the Tories have been overtaken by Labour with respondents to a Survation poll for ITV’s Good Morning Britain programme putting Jeremy Corbyn’s party on 44 per cent and the Conservatives on 41 per cent.
The results represent a surge in support for Labour with a similar Survation poll conducted at the start of May putting the Tories on 47 per cent and Mr Corbyn’s party on 30 per cent.
Despite the fact that the poll puts Labour ahead of the Conservatives the survey is not all bad news for Mrs May.
With Brexit negotiations starting today, Mrs May was the party leader that most people trusted to negotiate the best deal with the Prime Minister backed by 52 per cent of people.
Some 39 per cent of people said they believed Mr Corbyn would deliver the best Brexit deal for the UK.
Meanwhile, 48 per cent of people said they believed Mrs May should remain Prime Minister while 45 per cent said they wanted her to resign.
Those surveyed were also asked how they would vote in another EU referendum with 51 per cent backing Remain and 49 per cent saying they would vote to leave the bloc.
Six out of ten of those polled said they thought a coalition of all political parties would be best to negotiate a good deal for Britain leaving the EU and just over a third said the current Conservative-led government would be best to negotiate a good Brexit deal.
