Jeremy Corbyn Lags Behind Theresa May Amongst Labour Voters, Says Ipos Mori Poll

The news comes just a few days after a ComRes poll found Corbyn was as unpopular as Nigel Farage amongst the British electorate, giving both men a -28 net rating.

His leadership rival Owen Smith has a better rating among the public (-14) but performs worse than Corbyn (-8) among Labour voters.

May’s new prime minister poll “bounce” continued as she was named Britain’s most popular politician.

Corbyn went head-to-head with his leadership rival Smith on Wednesday during a live BBC debate.

While the Labour leader failed to identify Ant and Dec, his opponent came under fire for saying the West will “eventually” have to negotiate with Isis.

Corbyn has been doing his best to burnish his credentials as a man of the people: sitting for three hours on the floor of a packed commuter train, doing a little jig at a campaign event and letting a group of comedians mock him on The Last Leg.
