Labour support for Corbynite policies

Yesterday, I published a short poll asking people on the Labour subreddit how they felt about a number of Jeremy Corbyn’s policies, to determine whether the claim that Corbyn was the problem more than his policies were true.

Below, I’ve changed my previous colour scheme for ease of reading, and we can imagine someone asking a four-year-old what they think of Corbyn and answering with trafic lights, i.e. the green is the pro-Corbyn group, yellow the neutrals, and red the anti-Corbyn group. So it definitely was not a subliminal attempt to paint the anti group as the ‘true Labour’, before I receive such an accusation.

As a reminder of the scale: 1 = very bad idea, 2 = bad idea, 3 = a little bit of a bad idea, 4 = neither good nor bad idea, 5 = a little bit of a good idea, 6 = a good idea, 7 = a very good idea
