5. I don't think May lacked visibility at all!

There was far far more of her ugly mug all over campaign literature than the local candidate, the boards in farmers fields all proclaimed that the local candidate was "STANDING WITH THERESA MAY" and other senior Conservative politician's (with the exception of Amber Rudd and maybe Ruth Davidson in Scotland) were not highlighted in the campaign.

I got deluged with Tory junk mail, and Theresa May was an inescapable, insufferable presence on Tory leaflets. Issues other than whether or not Theresa May is or isn't the Brexit messiah were ignored. The top down Tory campaign also had the effect of portraying Tory candidates as Theresa May's lickspittles. Although my newly elected Conservative MP is doing his best to live down to that.
