More On That Corbynista ‘Voodoo Poll’

yg-poll-raf

Labour voters Labour members Corbyn electors
Approve 52% 28% 16%
Disapprove 26% 58% 72%
Don’t Know 22% 14% 12%

Above is a YouGov poll which found that only 26% of Labour voters disapprove of bombing Syria, this rises to 58% of Labour members and 72% of Corbyn backing Labour members. Yet somehow the Corbynistas have counted a sample of 1,900 responses out of 107,875 they got back from an email burst and found 75% of members oppose the RAF bombing ISIS in Syria. How can this be?

Well it all depends who is doing the counting. Guido is told by a source inside Labour HQ that the counting was done by the new digital chief,  Ben Soffa. Who is Ben?

Ben is a new Corbynista appointee, his previous job was spinning for the militant TSSA union, before that he was spinning for the CND, did digital stuff for Hacked Off and was the secretary of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign. An impartial counter of votes, really?

Poll: Should Feldman Resign?

This is of course an unrepresentative online poll, however if it is good enough for Corbyn to decide if the nation should go to war, it is good enough to decide if someone should resign…

Osborne Sinks to Third in Tory Leader Race

Osborne Crisis Poll

As well as having the worst October borrowing figures for six years, Osborne today slipped to third in the leadership polls among Tory voters. He is down 9% with Ipsos Mori. Boris is well ahead and even T-May is ahead of George…

Leave Still Polling Ahead of Remain

leave

Leave is ahead by the most since November 2014. Both YouGov and Survation have shown small polling leads for Leavers over Remainers in September. The PM will be cheered that his blocking welfare for migrants policy was the single most popular policy in the poll. If only he could get the other members states to agree to it…

Zac Trails Sadiq in First London Poll

A warning from YouGov that the Zac campaign can’t be complacent despite their good fortune with Labour’s choice of candidate:

Guido wonders if 72% of Londoners will still consider Sadiq “likeable” by the end of the campaign…

Poll Suggests Referendum Re-Wording Helps EU-Leavers

ComRes did a poll back in May on the effect of a wording change for the referendum question. The change in wording alone gives a 7 point gain to the EU Leavers. All to play for…

1 in 5 Corbyn Supporters Voted for Clegg

yougov-corbyn

Quick data dump from YouGov highlights some interesting points about Corbynistas – social media is their main news source and nearly 1 in 5 of them succumbed to Cleggmania in 2010 and voted in the Lib-Con coalition. YouGov politely describes them as a “more mobile protest vote”. Guido would describe them as the twitterati idiots. 

labLeadSpectrum02-01

YouGov found that Corbynistas are 5 times as left wing as ordinary voters. Other personality traits are equally unsurprising; two thirds describe themselves as dreamers and only 1 in 8 say they are good with numbers and concludes that “Put simply, this group is not going to be ‘reasoned with’ – they are looking to be inspired.” If the unreasonable crazies win, this is going to be fun..

Corbynistas: Agent Provocateurs

CORBYN agent

YouGov have made a profile of what is “particularly true” of people who like Jeremy Corbyn and have made a surprising discovery: their favourite clothing brand is apparently the sexy lingerie company Agent Provocateur. Sexy Socialism? Somehow it is hard to imagine even rich Corbynistas like Owen Jones in silky crotchless smalls. Check your algorithm YouGov’nurs…

As well as having a penchant for risqué panties, Corbyn fans are online for 50 hours a week, tune in to Radio 4, shop at the Co-op, watch Channel 4 News and read the Guardian – naturally – whilst listening to B.B. King. They are most likely to describe themselves as “ethical” and “miserable”…

YouGov sampled 5,875 Corbyn supporters on August 1, 2015
