It’s hard to comment on private polling and I’ve no idea about the veracity of it. But I don’t think that the Mirror would be flagging it in the way it is without it having some confidence about the source.
The Corbyn lead is extraordinary and fits in with other indicators.
The question is which of Cooper/Burnham/Kendall will get to the final round of counting against Corbyn.
One of the crazy misjudgements of Team Burnham was that the Corbyn second preferences would come their way. If JC is in the lead then his supporter’s 2nd and 3rd prefs simply are NOT going to be counted.
Thanks again Labour for all the entertainment you are giving us during what is usually a quiet time.
