It's about the brexit mandate.

48/52 although a win for Brexit is a narrow win.

Getting a (eg) 60/40 split of the MPs in the Tory favour in Parliament can be called by May a "clear mandate" etc and she can ride over last years vote and claim that we're all for it. Rather than the actualite which would be more like a lot of voters were put off by Corbyn with the effect of diluting opposition to Tory voters.
