Even EdM had net positives at this stage
It used to be that YouGov published its well/badly party leader ratings on a weekly basis. Now in this post-GE2015 polling disaster era we only get them once a month. The latest, for November, is just out for the Times and the figures continue to decline for Mr. Corbyn. Of those polled 52% said he was doing badly with 30% saying well.
To put that into context on November 19th 2010 Ed Miliband was still in positive territory with the online firm – a net plus 1%.
There are are several different polling approaches to leader ratings. Ipsos asks about “satisfaction/dissatisfaction“; ComRes “favourable/unfavourable“, Opinium “approval/disapproval” and YouGov “well/badly“.
In every single poll of whatever form where leader rating questions have been put since Corbyn got the job he has been in negative territory.
Meanwhile there’s a new Survation EUREF poll which has REMAIN in lead – almost a reversal of the figures that the firm had last week.
