According to Daily Mail online Labour 8 points ahead of Tories..Seems like May is seriously wounded. Corbyn v Davis coming up? Corbyn will win : people will be too p*ssed off with the Blues.

Par for the course given the relentlessly negative (TV especially) coverage of May vs the polar opposite for Corbyn of late. Millipede was regularly ahead, often in double digits, during the 2010-2015 period.

Can't see it myself, what with the Brexit clock ticking, the Tories know they have to deliver on that while Davis has more than enough on his plate dealing with Barnier. There'll be no Tory appetite for supporting a motion of no-confidence at this stage of the game.

Maybot will limp along for the next couple of years, whatever happens next will hinge on the Brexit 'deal'.

Looking for Guy Fawkes to finish the job
Jeremy Corbyn is currently the nations favourite grandfather and if there were a general election tomorrow he would probably win some more seats but maybe not the 54 or so for an overall majority.

However, its a long road and with Brexit as toxic for Labour as the Tories and with threats of de-selection of moderate Labour MP's the path ahead may be rocky for him. The Tories will have a new leader for the next election and will present themselves as "new" in a similar way to Johnny Major in 1992.

You're right in that it doesn't mean everything, but it does mean something. It's difficult to see what May/ the Tories can do to improve their image. So many mounting problems, and the Govt. looking like it is not in control of events.

Really? The campaign against Corbyn continues unabated by the popular press. May leadership is questionable as one U turn follows another, but she gets treated favourably.
