This could calm the nerves of those worried about the new leader
As the above panel shows there have been precious few voting polls since the general election. Many of the pollsters and those who commissioned them have cut back on their efforts pending the review a what went wrong on May 7th.
But some have carried on notably the major phone poles of ICM, Ipsos, and ComRes. There is, of course, no YouGov daily poll which was the focus of so much attention in the 4Â½ years leading to the last general election.
The worst fears of many within LAB was that the election of Corbyn could have caused it problems. Maybe that will happen but so far there is nothing to suggest that the party is being perceived much differently from what it was before he became leader.
The October surveys are generally regarded as being important indicators because they are the tests of opinion following the end of the conference season.
