    Three percent more people believe that UK Prime Minister Theresa May would still make a better leader for the country than opposition Labour party head Jeremy Corbyn, a poll showed Friday.

    LONDON (Sputnik) – According to the YouGov survey, May currently holds the support of 36 percent of UK voters, whereas 33 percent believe Corbyn would make a better prime minister. The remaining 31 percent of those survey have not made up their on who would be the better leader.

    When considering the two key parties in the new parliament, voting intention for the Labor party has reached 44 percent, 1 point higher than the results recorded in the mid-July poll. The portion of UK voters who prefer the Conservative Party remains unchanged at 41 percent.

    The total of 1,655 UK citizens took part in the survey, conducted from July 31 to August 1.

    The poll’s results come two months after the UK parliamentary snap elections, which were initially intended to unify the political leadership ahead of the upcoming Brexit negotiations.

    May's authority was shattered as the vote resulted in a hung parliament and prompted the Conservatives to agree a deal on support with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).
