Theresa May is a strong leader - but Jeremy Corbyn is more in touch with ordinary people

Another poll putting Labour around 16 points behind the Tories with four weeks to go until polling day - and that’s about as good as the news got for Jeremy Corbyn. Fewer than half of people who voted Labour in 2015 - and just 56.9% of people who intended to vote Labour in June - thought Jeremy Corbyn would make the best Prime Minister. And perhaps even more alarmingly, only 39% of all those who took the poll thought he would be the best candidate to protect the NHS, compared to 42% picking Mrs May.
