It reveals the Tory leader will aim to galvanise the successful Brexit vote from the landmark 2016 referendum in a bid to repeat the result.
Insiders claim the Downing Street operation is convinced it can secure majority by “zeroing in” on the key issues of crime, immigration, schools and the NHS.
Since taking office, the PM has announced plans to hire 20,000 more police, pour £14billion into education and repair more than 50 hospitals.
The road-testing came as a poll by consultancy Hanbury claimed voters fear Jeremy Corbyn more than a No Deal Brexit.
