Two-thirds of voters believe Theresa May making bad job of Brexit

Two-thirds of voters believe Theresa May making bad job of Brexit
1 min read

Two-thirds of voters believe Theresa May is doing a bad job of negotiating Britain's departure from the European Union.

A YouGov poll for The Times shows that 66% think the Government is making a mess of Brexit - the most since she became Prime Minister nearly two years ago.

Just 21% of Brits think ministers are doing well in their negotiations with Brussels, giving an overall satisfaction rating of minus 45%. That is down from minus 39 per cent two weeks ago.

The grim findings for the Prime Minister emerged as she was plunged into a fresh war with Tory Brexit rebels after they rejected her attempts to strike a peace deal over their demands for a meaningful vote on the final deal.

Labour have also closed the gap on the Conservatives, according to the same poll. The Tories are down two points to 42%, with Labour up to on 39%.

There was some better news for Mrs May, however. Despite her ongoing leadership woes, the proportion of voters who think she would make a better Prime Minister than Jeremy Corbyn has actually increased.

According to the poll, 39% believed she was the best person for the job, up two points. Meanwhile, just 24% of voters believe Mr Corbyn is the most suitable candidate.
