Approval of the government’s handling of Brexit talks rose as high as 55 percent in the first half of 2017, but has since fallen.

According to the poll of around 2,000 adults, 56 percent of voters were not confident May would get the right deal while 26 percent thought she would get the right deal and the rest didn’t know.

“May has lost her Brexit minister (David Davis) but she is also increasingly losing the confidence of voters,” said Johnny Heald, managing director of ORB International.
