Two-Thirds of Union Members Think Corbyn Doing Badly

two-thirds-union

This is pretty devastating for Corbyn. Lefties believe that “the workers united can nver be defeated”, well this says they are heading for total defeat. Before brainless Momentum supporters say we can’t trust the pollsters, well YouGov called the Labour leadership elections spot on, twice. Bring on the early election…

Labour MPs Love Theresa May As Well

THERESA MAY MOST IMPRESSIVE MPS

It’s not just Labour’s former advisers who like Theresa May – their MPs think she’s impressive too. Theresa May was deemed “most impressive parliamentarian” by no less than 35% of Labour MPs, putting her second on the leadership table only to be beaten by Cameron in an Ipsos MORI poll of members. While May was deemed impressive by more ministers, the ex-cabinet ministers sitting bitterly on the backbenches put Dave ahead in the overall stakes by just 1% – to 26%.

Labour’s strongest contender was unsurprisingly Hilary Benn, coming joint sixth with 6%, but was beaten to a top five place by Angus Robertson. Labour MPs went mostly unloved, with Tom Watson and Dan Jarvis gaining the support of just one MP each (possibly themselves?). One Conservative joker backed Corbyn for the title. If Labour MPs like May so much, why don’t they just…

#TrainGate: Labour Voters Trust Corbyn

CORBYN TRAINGATE YOUGOV

Labour voters showed their trust in Corbyn in a recent YouGov poll on TrainGate. 39% of current Labour voters believe Corbyn’s version of events – that there were no unreserved seats available – compared to 34% believing Virgin’s story. 44% think Corbyn was being dishonest but only 36% of Labour voters think that his dishonesty matters. On the stump supporters argue the attack by offshore privateer Branson helps Corbyn with activists…

Corbyn Preferred to Osborne as PM

Another killer YouGov poll in Red Box this morning. It has not gone unnoticed among Tory MPs:

By 13 points…

ICM Poll Has Tories and Labour Level

guido poll

The latest ‘gold standard’ ICM poll has the Tories and Labour level on 36% each. For the first time since Corbyn’s election the two parties are neck and neck. Corbyn surge!

Osborne’s Ratings Hit Three Year Low

Osborne Poll

These numbers from Ipsos MORI and the Standard confirm Osborne is on the wane. His public satisfaction rating has dropped from his highest ever score of 47% in April 2014 to a three year low of 40%. His dissatisfaction rating has meanwhile risen to 46%, meaning Osborne is now more unpopular than Alistair Darling in 2008. That is quite a downturn

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

wording-eu-poll

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

Boris Collapse: Third in Tory Leader Poll

More bad news for Boris in the monthly ConHome next Tory leader survey. Osborne tops the poll for the first time and BoJo slips to third, behind Saj. The first time Boris has been outside of the top two for two years…

Dave’s Dossier: Deal or No Deal?

EU REFORM

If today’s extensive leak is accurate, this is what the PM is seeking from EU leaders as his renegotiation deal:

  • opt out from ever closer union
  • renewed focus on competitiveness and economic growth
  • fairness between eurozone and non-eurozone members
  • restrictions on EU migrants claiming benefits

So, what do Guido readers think?

Read Dave’s demands and decide: would that be enough to win your vote to stay in?

Quote of the Day

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
