Theresa May’s future as Prime Minister is in serious doubt after suffering a catastrophic loss of support from Conservative Party members.

According to a new survey by the ConservativeHome website, the Prime Minister is now the second most loathed politician in the entire party – a plunge from her glory days as ‘most popular PM in almost 40 years’, which the right-wing tabloids gleefully gloated about only six weeks ago.

What have they got to gloat about now, though? Well… not a lot.

May’s satisfaction rating now rests at -26.1, when just a few weeks back it was +89.1. This is the consequence of calling an egotistical snap election then refusing to step down when the gamble failed, despite calls at the time from grassroots members for her to fall on her sword – even the most faithful of minions will not tolerate this behaviour for long.

Despite this colossal collapse of support, most Conservative Party members do not want her to step down immediately. This is possibly because the disastrous decrease of Tory support in the polls suggests that if another general election is called then this time Labour may emerge victorious; this is not a risk the Tory members are willing to take.

Despite these poll ratings, it looks like Theresa May is determined to cling onto power for as long as possible, with her spokesman confirming yesterday that May was still intending to serve a full five-year term.

But with her own party members so horrendously dissatisfied with her leadership, it’s only a matter of times before she’s given her marching orders.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
