Maybe find out what the term more presidential means and then examine her conduct as PM.

Short answer imo is NO, but argue either way as long as you back it up.

Hmmm. Good question!

Looking at her GE 2017 campaign, yes. The focus on the Theresa May brand as opposed to the Conservative party put her at the forefront of the campaign and almost ignored the other 300+ MPs she wanted to get elected. The TM branding at speeches and her bus as well as 'Strong and Stable Leadership under Theresa May' put too much of a focus on her and was VERY presidential - contrast it with the Trump 2016 campaign.

Her leadership at the moment I'd say is slightly presidential. She's at the forefront of some campaigns and Conservative branding but she needs to bring her cabinet in to the picture a bit more to resonate with the traditional PM look of a government.

She also seems to act as a president when the nation is in crisis. Her response to the Salisbury Nerve Agent Attack aimed to put her in the spot light of bringing peace and reassurance to the nation (what a president does alike GWB in 911 and BO in Hurricaine Sandy). Although this is her job, the Queen should be doing most of it but TM seems to be slightly taking over which would be seen of a president.

Thank you for this very detailed response!!!! What do you think about the decline of cabinet government if you have time?

Well... Theresa May is more presidential as the campaign focussed on her being strong and stable than the party as a whole, as a matter of fact her manifesto criticism on dementia tax rile up voters but the attacks were made against her directly in the debates on the tv she was shown as weak being unable to turn up

Theresa may also was the head figure in the European Council as the U.K. was a member of the Eu, thereby she’s more presidential as she has this position of authority the Cabinet doesn’t infringe upon.

Theresa May is more presidential as the media’s remarks were on her and against Corbyn not about the party’s

Though she isn’t looking at her weak minority government
