U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's lead over the opposition Labour Party remains unchanged at 12 points ahead of a June 8 election, but her personal approval ratings have turned negative for the first time, according to a ComRes poll published on Saturday.
YouGov said May was still the most favoured choice for prime minister, though her 43 per cent rating is the lowest it has ever been.
May praised her performance when she stood in for the prime minister at a televised election debate on Wednesday against all the leaders of Britain's other main parties, after May herself declined to attend.

Pressed over his willingness to push the nuclear button in the face of an imminent threat, the Labour leader said: "I think the idea of anyone ever using a nuclear weapon anywhere in the world is utterly appalling and awful..."
One audience member demanded: "Would you use it as second use or would you allow North Korea, or some idiot in Iran to bomb us and then say oh we'd better start talking".
"I'm afraid there is a lesson here about Jeremy Corbyn's psychology and his politics and his naivety, with which he approaches not just the logic of the nuclear deterrent but also the Brexit negotiations".
The Labour leader attacked Mrs May for failing to sign a joint letter with leaders of Germany, France and Italy condemning President Donald Trump's decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris Accord on climate change.
The online poll of 1,049 people was carried out on June 3.
