71% of Scots Think Corbyn’s a Disaster

YouGov Regional Poll Labour

YouGov’s poll of Labour members produced a miserable top-line figure for ardent Corbynistas, showing just 18% of members thought the left-wing leader had done well in the recent round of local and PCC elections. Although that’s not so bad considering he’s the first opposition leader to have lost local seats in over 30 years…

Looking at the regional breakdown, a much bigger problem for Corbyn emerges. Part of the supposed “logic” Corbynistas wheeled out during his election as party leader was that his left-wing, anti-austerity stance could win over the Scotch who had fled to the SNP in droves. Far from Corbyn’s prediction of a crushing victory over the Nats in Hollyrood, Labour managed to lose 13 seats, plummeting behind the hated Tories. As a result, Labour supporters north of the border are not impressed: 71% of them think the party did badly, with 41% believing he did very badly. Inevitably, London felt most positively about the Islingtonian-led party, with 20% approving of Labour’s performance. Corbyn has the same North London metropolitan elite problem as Miliband…
