You won’t hear any protests from me when you call Jeremy Corbyn unelectable. What a joke the man is. He can’t afford a nice suit, and didn’t even have the decency to look flustered when asked to publish his tax return. What kind of politician is that?
That said, being skeptics, we like all that evidence and stuff. So I thought I would see if there is any evidence as to whether Jeremy is electable or not.
|1982||Islington North Labour Party candidate selection||Jeremy wins with 54% vote share|

|1987||General election||Jeremy wins with 50% vote share|
|1992||General election||Jeremy wins with 57% vote share|
|1997||General election||Jeremy wins with 69% vote share|
|2001||General election||Jeremy wins with 62% vote share|
|2005||General election||Jeremy wins with 51% vote share|
|2010||General election||Jeremy wins with 55% vote share|
|2015||General election||Jeremy wins with 60% vote share|
|2015||Labour Party leadership election||Jeremy wins with 60% vote share, in the first round of alternative voting|
It probably comes down to personal opinion as to whether you think Jeremy Corbyn is electable or not. After all, it is all in the interpretation of the data. It’s just that, so far, he has won every single election he has ever contested in his entire political career, which started well before I was born.
