The voting was held Thursday.
May met with the Queen of England Friday morning, giving a statement saying that, with the support of the Northern Irish party, she will form her own government. "We can still do this", he continued.
After calling a snap election in April in anticipation of a landslide, she ended up with an electoral train wreck, in which her Conservative Party actually lost its parliamentary majority.
The Tory housing minister is the author of a book entitled How To Win A Marginal Seat, although it proved not to guide him through to victory on this occasion.
Less than a year after May was propelled into Downing Street following Britain's surprise referendum decision to leave the European Union, party insiders were placing bets on how long she could last.
Some colleagues may be lining up to replace her, although a party source said the post was seen as too much of a poisoned chalice for the time being. This would mean Britain's immediate and total withdrawal from the single market.
Organisers who worked on the Sanders campaign provided assistance to Momentum, the leftwing pressure group, in the runup to the election, coaching Labour members on how to canvass voters online and offline. So, this election shows there are many people in Britain that would prefer a softer Brexit.
With the complex talks on the divorce from the European Union due to start in 10 days, it was unclear what their direction would now be and if the so-called "Hard Brexit" taking Britain out of a single market could still be pursued. Corbyn accused the Conservatives of undermining Britain's security by cutting the number of police on the streets. She had been executing a political strategy that prevented the Brexit debate from being reopened. But we'll put up our demands and our message and we'll assert those.
May's Downing St. office said Conservative Chief Whip Gavin Williamson was in Belfast Saturday for talks with the DUP "on how best they can provide support to the government". They said it could harm the Brexit talks, which are to begin in 10 days.
Turnout among young voters was a surprisingly high 72 per cent, according to exit polls, compared with an estimated 43 per cent of 18-to-24-year-olds at the last general election in 2015. People told pollsters that they were anxious about the future of the National Health Service, that they didn't like May's flip-flops on elderly care, that they were unnerved by instability unleashed by the Tories.
Theresa May's grip on power appears far from secure despite a potential deal with the Democratic Unionist Party to support her in Parliament. Political observers said the latest losses mean a vote about independence is unlikely in the near future.
Firstly, it appears that the Prime Minister is going to get no leeway from Europe - the head of the European Commission wants Brexit talks to resume nearly immediately.
