Theresa May is at risk of falling in to the “Hillary Trap” whereby people are happy to vote for the party but not for its leader.
On the dawn of the election new research has revealed May has run a disastrous campaign, with two times as many Brits saying Jeremy Corbyn has done a better job than his Conservative counterpart.
The OnePoll research revealed 39 per cent of Brits think the Labour leader has run a better bid for number 10, compared to just 19 per cent who say Theresa May has done a better job.
And there are clear reasons why.
Thirty-nine per cent of respondents said the Conservatives have made the most blunders in the campaign.
And just 13 per cent said they believe Theresa May has fared best in television appearances.
Over a quarter say they believe Labour has run the best media campaign in the run up to the election, compared to just 19 per cent Conservative.
Social media also seems to have had a big role to play, the OnePoll survey of 1,000 Brits revealed.
A fifth of Brits said they have been impressed with Labour’s social media campaigning compared to just eight per cent who say the same for the Tories.
A spokesperson for One Poll said: “What a difference six weeks makes.
“When the snap election was called the Conservatives were on course for a clear majority in Parliament.
“But Theresa May has had a shocker.
“She has failed to enthuse the nation about her policies and could be in danger of falling into the trap the Democrats fell into in the US whereby people felt they could vote Democrat but not for Hillary.”
