James O’Brien’s Fascinating Theory On Jeremy Corbyn’s Poll Surge


Jeremy Corbyn is surging in recent opinion polls and as political commentators scramble to work out why, James O’Brien has one particularly fascinating theory.

Labour has cut the Conservatives’ lead to just five points, according to the latest YouGov/Times survey.

It’s the first time Mr Corbyn has narrowed the gap to single figures since Theresa May called the snap election back in April.

But what’s fuelling this unexpected surge in support for the left-wing leader? James believes it bears similarities to what happened with Donald Trump in the US Presidential election.

He said: “It seems to me that Theresa May is losing support, more than Jeremy Corbyn is gaining it.

“But what is attracting people perhaps to Jeremy Corbyn… is simply he is clearly and demonstrably not like the rest of them.

“You know how they’re often interchangeable on the telly, all wearing the same suits, they’re all wearing the same expressions, they’re all trotting out the same soundbites.

“He is different, he is just not like the rest of them.”

Watch James’ fascinating theory in all its glory above.
