Jeremy Corbyn: Is it his unflinching determination to stand up for the poor, the vulnerable and the disenfranchised that has turned the general public against him?

Much is being made of the difference between two polls on the National Health Service – the first suggests the Conservatives would handle the NHS crisis better than Labour; the second suggests the opposite.

The difference is that Jeremy Corbyn’s name is attached to the first poll.

The obvious question must be: What is it about Jeremy Corbyn that the general public (we are told) dislikes so strongly?

The membership of the Labour Party – Europe’s largest political organisation, since he took over as leader – absolutely love him. Not in a cultish way, but because he stands for policies they admire and would like to see returned to the British political debate.

But the inference from the polls is that the public at large dislike Mr Corbyn – and therefore do not want these policies.

For clarity, here is an infographic showing his many policy objectives:

Now, let’s have a few poll questions. These are only for people who oppose Mr Corbyn:

Alternatively, perhaps it is Mr Corbyn himself who causes offence?

If so, please use the contact form below to explain exactly why you think he, personally, is bad for the United Kingdom; why you believe he is not a good leader of the Labour Party; why you think he does not lead a government-in-waiting. Please do not use the form to write simple abuse as this will not be accepted as a reasonable argument (why would anybody think it was?) and your comment will be deleted.

I’ll publish some preliminary results tomorrow, and a final analysis when I’m satisfied that everybody who wants to respond has done so.
