Parties:

Con 39%,
Lab 31%
UKIP 16%
LD 6%
GRN 3%

Asked whether it was likely Jeremy Corbyn would ever be Prime Minister, most deemed it unlikely. 17% said likely, 69% said unlikely and 13% didn't know.

Leaders:

Cameron: +3
Corbyn: -8
Farron: -18
Farage: -3

Both Farron and Corbyn, as expected, have a lot of people stating they 'don't know' whether the leaders are doing well or badly.

Aren't YouGov the same people who predicted a major Labour victory for 2015 GE?

I would take anything they say with a (large) pinch of salt.

No polling suggested anything of the kind.... They did predict that Corbyn would win outright.

It's fairly stunning that they're still on over 30%.

Well, it is YouGov. I think when the wider public wakes up to what Corbyn really is - yet another fan of mass immigration and an appeaser of the barbarity that is Islam - it will push yet more people in the opposite direction, or towards the Lib Dems or UKIP.

The same people that said Labour were beating the conservatives by a couple of percent in the 2015 general election.

No. Most pollsters suggested a draw in vote share. The telephone pollsters (Comres, ICM, Ipsos) mostly suggested a Tory win but falling short.

At any rate, the consensus is that the Tories have a larger lead than the general election but not by much.

You like him, but even you make him sound like a limp-dicked punk, because that's what he is


Labour simply will not win an election with him as their leader.

They would if the Tories screw up.

Then it doesn't matter what kind of person he is, just as long as he's not a Tory...

4 years is a long time in politics.

You'd be wise to keep your own counsel...

Not on this one. Corbyn's supporters have ensured labour is unelectable.

Will you acknowledge you hold a flawed minority opinion when corbyn isn't ejected?

Tbh, I don't think that's a bad result for Labour, all things considered.

As long as his MP's work hard in their existing constituencies and prospective MP's work hard in their prospective constituencies, it might just be enough to reduce the majority of the Tories.

Corbyn couldn't possibly do anymore damage to Labour than what has gone on before. I mean, Labout have been hemorrhaging seats since 1997.

Will you acknowledge you hold a flawed minority opinion when corbyn isn't ejected?
If Labour gains a majority under Corbyn, then he won't be "ejected". :confused:

Also why is no one talking about the com-res poll? Over 2,000 surveyed (one of the biggest sample sizes) and it gave:

Con - 42
Lab - 30
UKIP - 13
LD - 7
SNP - 5
Green - 3
Others - 1
