If Corbyn is Hard Left Then A Lot of People Are Hard Left

The internet obviously plays a role here, too, given that far more young people get their news from online sources. If my own social media networks, for example, reflected real life then Jeremy Corbyn would be heading for a landslide in the next general election. Conversely, Corbyn’s polling amongst older generations could hardly get any worse. The trouble is that, as I recently argued in a piece about the Labour leader, it’s the ‘old media’ that still set the agenda.
