The voting was held Thursday.
But in one of the most sensational nights in British electoral history, a resurgent Labour Party denied her an outright win, throwing the country into political turmoil.
And the other thing, I think, which I think caught us by surprise was the sheer effectiveness of the campaigning by Jeremy Corbyn, the left-wing leader of the Labour Party who fought a very authentic campaign - quite an old fashioned campaign, in some ways - with big open-air rallies where he really energized people.
Following the election, May faced backlash over the failure of the Conservative party, with a number of politicians - including Corbyn - suggesting that she has to resign. However, the Tories were polling incredibly well back in April, so Theresa May made a calculated risk to call for an early election in an effort to bolster her numbers in Parliament. May confirmed Friday that senior ministers would remain in their posts, despite rumours that she had been ready to sack finance minister Philip Hammond following a clash over her Brexit strategy. "The new government would be able to unite and work together for the overall interest of the entire #United Kingdom", May said. She can only realistically govern now with the support of a party from Northern Ireland, which has a rather different approach to Brexit than her.
In the short span that Theresa May was at the helm after her predecessor David Cameron had quit office taking responsibility for the adverse European Union membership vote, there were terror incidents that shook Britain and worsened the security environment. The Liberal Democrats, the most pro-EU of the parties, only won 12 seats. The Conservative Party is notoriously ruthless in getting rid of weak leaders, and the bookie's current favourite will be familiar to the whole country. Written off by many pollsters, Labour surged in the final weeks of the campaign.
European Union leaders expressed fears the shock poll would delay Brexit talks, due to begin on June 19.

And Billie Jean King, once a top women's tennis player, tweeted , "Mili, continue to be yourself, dream big and go for it. "Listing a male player on a girls team roster is a violation of state and tournament rules", said the soccer club.
"We need a government that can act", EU Budget Commissioner Guenther Oettinger told German broadcaster Deutschlandfunk.
There was little sympathy for May from some Europeans. And it looks like a soft Brexit is now much more likely. The result ended his career and shocked Europe. "It is not the outcome any of us would have wanted in the Conservative Party".
He said: "As far as the commission is concerned, we can open negotiations tomorrow morning at half-past nine".
Britain's best-selling Sun newspaper said senior party members promised to get rid of May, but would wait at least six months because they were anxious that a leadership contest now could propel Corbyn into power. Even the idea that a vote for the Labour Party could be seen as some sort of "protest" is not necessarily borne out by the evidence. "I would have thought that's enough to go, actually, and make way for a government that will be truly representative of all of the people of this country". Following the Brexit referendum, the snap polls represent the second disastrous election called by a Tory PM in two years.
The resignations of Timothy and Hill, on whom May has been heavily reliant since her previous job at the interior ministry, will be a personal blow.
