Things have changed drastically for both politicians in the last three weeks, as the same poll in the days before the General Election had Mrs May with 43% approval and Mr Corbyn on 32%.
The former deputy Labour leader compared Mr Corbyn to Tony Blair saying they share a clear appeal to the electorate.
Meanwhile, PM May - whose party voted down fire-safety measures for housing, while her friend and ally Boris Johnson cut funding to the fire brigades - refused to to meet with the people of Grenfell, possibly because she feared they'd turn into an angry mob like all the other actual British people she meets.
"The Parliamentary Labour Party, before we went into the General Election, were a very distraught set of people".
But almost a third of respondents (30%) said they were unsure. If you are an apprentice.it can be as low as £3.50 an hour.
Corbyn called the situation a "nationwide threat" and called on the prime minister to convene a meeting of the government's emergency response committee Cobra to deal with it.
"Well, I hope the Prime Minister is listening today when I say that there are not complex reasons for people having to use foodbanks - the only reason is that this Government refuses to ensure people have enough income to feed themselves".
Mr Corbyn also used his address to the conference to link the Grenfell Tower fire, which is thought to have killed at least 79 people, to "austerity economics".
Corbyn's Labour Party outperformed expectations in this month's election, turning what was predicted to be a procession for May into a disaster, severely weakening her authority as Britain kicks off crucial Brexit talks.
Speaking after the event, Abbott said: "I think we are going to find that the numbers of people that have died will be in triple figures, just because it's a 23-storey [sic] block".
