One of the polling elements that I’ve been highlighting in recent weeks is how leader ratings have proved to be a better pointer to electoral outcomes than voting intention polling.
The above charts seek to put into context Corbyn’s latest ratings. Clearly there’s four and a half years still to go and things can happen but I can find no example of a leader doing so badly on this scale who went on to turn things round. It is hard to see anything other than another CON majority.
