With the possibility of a general election looming as the Brexit deadlock rumbles on, a poll by politics website Politico has revealed the Prime Minister’s approval ratings are higher than Mr Corbyn’s. The survey polled voters in constituencies in London, the East Midlands, the North West and Scotland. The Prime Minister was ahead of Mr Corbyn in all four areas.
Even in Remainer-favouring London 26 percent of those asked were satisfied with the way Mrs May is doing her job, compared to 24 percent for Mr Corbyn.
In the East Midlands a quarter of people were happy with Mrs May compared to 14 percent with Islington MP Mr Corbyn.
In the North West 25 percent of people are satisfied with the way the Prime Minister is doing her job while 17 percent back the Labour leader.
Meanwhile in Scotland 14 percent were behind the Prime Minister with support for Mr Corbyn at just seven percent.
It comes after Mrs May turned to the Labour leader last week in a desperate bid to reach a compromise to get her divorce deal over the line.
The Prime Minister sparked a furious reaction from Tories including former foreign secretary Boris Johnson and prominent backbencher Jacob Rees-Mogg.
Time is running out for Mrs May to agree an exit deal ahead of a summit of EU leaders this week.
She has told the bloc that she wants to delay Brexit until June 30 at the latest.
But Brussels is expected to demand a clear strategy from Mrs May and could demand a longer extension meaning the UK would have to take part in the upcoming European elections.
In a video message recorded over the weekend, the Prime Minister insisted that both sides must compromise in her cross-party talks with Labour.
She said: “It’ll mean compromise on both sides but I believe that delivering Brexit is the most important thing for us.”
However discussions have stalled and Labour accused Mrs May of refusing to budge on her so-called red lines.
If she fails to reach a deal with Mr Corbyn, the Prime Minister has promised to put a series of Brexit options to Parliament and be bound by the result.
Politico and Hanbury Strategy conducted the poll between February 28 and March 22.
