A new YouGov poll shows May's Conservatives eight points behind the Labour Party. That means if another election were held tomorrow, May would lose her job, according to NPR. Professor Patrick Diamond said: “She's not going to be prime minister for a decade.

We have to get rid of her before then’. Having said that, they would also like an election to happen after the Brexit negotiations have been completed.”
