The Conservatives have opened up their biggest lead over Labour since before the 2010 general election, according to a new opinion poll.
Ipsos MORI put the Tories on 47% - seven points up on last month and 18 points ahead of Labour who dropped five points to 29%.
The Liberal Democrats are up one point on 7%, overtaking Ukip who are down three on 6%.
The findings will alarm those Labour MPs who fear the party cannot win a general election under Jeremy Corbyn, despite his overwhelming victory in last month’s leadership contest.
The poll found just 31% were satisfied with the way the Labour leader was doing his job against 55% who were dissatisfied - giving him an overall negative satisfaction rating of -24.
That contrasts with Theresa May who enjoyed a positive satisfaction rating of +16, with 48% satisfied and 32% dissatisfied with her performance.
• Ipsos MORI interviewed 1,016 adults aged 18 and over across Great Britain by telephone between October 14 and 17.
