General election: Corbyn counters leadership concerns by saying poll 'not about me' at Labour launch [View all]

The Guardian

By Andrew Sparrow

here are the results of the three polls around today.

An Ipsos MORI poll for the Evening Standard gives the Tories a 17-point lead over Labour. The poll also confirms that Jeremy Corbyn’s personal approval ratings remain dismal. The Standard reports:
Mr Johnson has the best personal scores of any leader since 2017, with 46 per cent satisfied and 44 dissatisfied — a net score of plus 2.

Conservatives are overwhelmingly happy with their leader, with 80 per cent satisfied and nine per cent dissatisfied. Mr Corbyn has failed to improve since last month’s record-breaking low personal scores. Just 15 per cent of voters are happy with his performance and 75 per cent are unhappy — a net score of minus 60.

Labour voters are divided about their leader, with 46 per cent satisfied and 49 per cent dissatisfied.... It was Sky’s Beth Rigby who put it to Jeremy Corbyn that he has the lowest approval rating for any opposition leader since 1977.
Here are the figures.
