Corbyn Poll Surge Continues

corbyn poll

Corbynmania is sweeping the nation! So much so that Scottish Labour are now a whopping two points ahead of the Tories with Ipsos Mori. Meanwhile this morning’s YouGov poll puts Corbyn’s net personal rating at -22, which is a whole 14 points better than what Nick Clegg used to score. Worse than Miliband though…

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…

Labour Surge to 24% in Scotland

Labour are up a massive three points in Scotland with TNS today, with the Corbyn surge meaning the gap with the SNP is a mere 34 points. A whopping 15% of Scots say they like Jezza, and more dislike him than they do the Scottish Tory leader. Onwards, comrades…

YouGov Poll: Remain 40%, Leave 40%

This is the latest from YouGov, out this afternoon:

Meanwhile, Norway, which the PM claimed was bad example of what would happen if you’re not part of the EU, are very happy outside:

Britain Most Patriotic Nation in Europe

natcen2

Only 15% of Brits feel “European” and 64% identify only as “British“, making us the most patriotic nation in Europe. Note that Greece and Ireland – countries that have suffered greatly at the hands of the European Central Bank – are also highly patriotic. If the remainers campaign by trying to foist a sense of European identity on the voters they will lose in Britain…

Corbyn Net Satisfaction Rating Surges to -2%

The Tories are down 3 points on last month with Ipsos Mori, while Corbyn’s net satisfaction rating surges to a personal best of -2%. He’s also doing better than Ed: fewer voters think Labour should ditch Corbyn than thought Miliband should be axed. A stormin’ Corbyn surge?

UPDATE: Jezza is no Nige when it comes to the popularity stakes:

Unaired YouGov Poll: Remain 50.6% Leave 49.4%

Curiously, Newsnight pulled the plug on a new YouGov poll showing just a percentage point difference between the Leavers and the Remainers last night. 5,000 people were surveyed online for the What UK Thinks website, one of the largest recent sample sizes on the referendum. The numbers were lined up for Newsnight, yet they were pulled at 10:28 pm. Matthew Goodwin, one of the academics who carried out the research, ain’t impressed, telling Guido:

“I am disappointed that despite promises of coverage a large survey, funded by a research council and relevant to the national debate, was shunted at the last minute with no warning.”

Newsnight say it was a “timing” issue…

The survey also asked how people would vote when prompted with different scenarios about whether the party leaders recommended to Remain or Leave. Farage looks pretty priced in, though the data suggests if Corbyn stuck to his Bennite Eurosceptic principles and backed a Leave vote that could swing it. Either way, it’s all to play for…

UPDATE: Newsnight editor Ian Katz gets in touch to emphasise that the poll was not commissioned by Newsnight.

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: Where’s Jezza?

Jeremy Corbyn is rumoured to be missing his date with Liz because he is on holiday, yet his spokesman will not confirm where he is. Where do Guido readers think he has gone? Take our poll…

YouGov: Corbyn Most Unpopular Oppositon Leader Ever

Poll Suggests Referendum Re-Wording Helps EU-Leavers

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..

Labour’s 22% Strategy

Ed Miliband was famously accused of seeking the support of just 35% of voters, a modest target of which he fell 5 points short. Well, judging by today’s ComRes poll, the best the next Labour leader can hope for is 22%:

Meanwhile the Tories are on 42%, their highest poll rating for 5 years. Come back, Ed, all is forgiven…

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”…
