capitulation has forsaken by 39% given Feb 2016. His net score
among members was +55% that month — though was only +17% in February

— both by autocratic majorities.
However, his decrease in recognition among a Labour membership
comes as a celebration continues to route a Conservatives by
double-digit margins in a polls and following a disastrous
better in a Copeland by-election.
Shadow Brexit Secretary Kier Starmer said final week that Labour had “no prospect”
of winning a subsequent ubiquitous choosing if a opening in the
polls doesn’t improve. A comparison source tighten to Corbyn agreed.
The members were separate down a center over how good they thought
Corbyn was behaving as Labour leader.

behaving ‘well’, compared to only reduction than half (47%) who said
he was behaving ‘badly.’
Labour members also judged Corbyn to be a singular biggest factor
in a party’s better in a new by-election in Copeland.
Labour had formerly tranquil a west Cumbrian chair for over
80 years though surrendered it to a Tories final month. A vital reason why so many 2015 Labour voters
unsuccessful to spin out in 2017 was Corbyn’s well-documented
antithesis to a chief industry. The Sellafield chief power
hire provides jobs to over 10,000 internal people.

Warren that Labour winning a subsequent choosing would be unlikely
even if Corbyn is transposed as personality before 2020.
When members were asked who they’d opinion for in a leadership
competition if Corbyn did mount down, a many renouned names were his
shade chancellor and tighten fan John McDonnell, and former
cupboard apportion Yvette Cooper.
McDonnell told a BBC on Sunday that he will “not mount for the
Labour care ever again. Full stop.”
Chuka Umunna, Keir Starmer, and Clive Lewis done adult a 5 most
renouned choices. Salford MP Rebecca Long-Bailey, who Corbyn’s
round regards a intensity successor, had a support of only 10%
The miss of renouned alternatives also suggests that there is no
genuine ardour among Labour members for nonetheless another leadership
The infancy of members pronounced that Corbyn had rubbed Labour’s
proceed to Brexit badly (53%). This is a bad pointer for a Labour
leader, given that Brexit was seen as a joint-most important
emanate now confronting Britain (66%).

Corbyn’s preference to levy a three-line-whip on MPs instructing
them to opinion in foster of Theresa May triggering Article 50,
