British media has lost the ability to influence public opinion
If you only looked at the British media, you'd think that Jeremy Corbyn's political career was over. Recently the American media has echoed the same sentiments.
It's universally understood in the British media that Jeremy Corbyn is a racist anti-semite.
Labour may as well start the search for Corbyn's replacement.
Before we bury Corbyn, maybe we should ask what the British public thinks?
The row over Jeremy Corbyn and whether or not he laid a wreath to commemmorate people connected to the Munich Olympic Massacre is a classic example of this. It has been the main political story for the last four days, yet YouGov polling today suggests it will have little impact. Only 6% of people say they are following the story closely, 20% fairly closely. Over half of the public say they aren’t following the story at all all (27%) or are completely unaware of it (26%).
...Overall, 16% of those who were aware of the story (that’s 16% of 74%, so about 12%) say it has made them think worse of Corbyn, but 68% say it has made no difference (21% because they had a good impression of Corbyn and still do, 47% because they had a negative impression of Corbyn and still do). Even that 16% is mostly made up of Conservative and Lib Dem supporters, who presumably were not Corbyn admirers to begin with.
It's like Americans with Russiagate. All of the media coverage in the world won't make it relevant to the lives of average voters.
Even Bloomberg has had to grudgingly admit the lack of impact in the polls.
Not only that, polls indicate that four million more voters could switch to Labour if the Tories continue to bungle Brexit, and if Corbyn announces his support of a new referendum.
