To try and provide an independent view on this I have cut and pasted some comments from YouGov's Anthony Wells immediately after Corbyn's conference speech on 2nd October.

"The poll repeated some of the questions YouGov asked just after Ed Miliband became Labour leader, five years ago. Corbynís figures are worse than the ratings Miliband had at the time and as I wrote in relation to the Ipsos MORI poll earlier in the week, while Corbynís ratings arenít that bad at first glance, brand new leaders normally get some leeway from the public, so they are bad when compared to the ratings new leaders have usually got."

The detail is interesting

"The figures are (remarkably) close to what they were five years ago when Labour first entered opposition Ė 71% think Labour need to make major changes to their policies and beliefs to be fit for goverment (up 2 from 2010), 58% think they have lost touch with ordinary working people (down 1), 56% think they havenít faced up to the damage they caused to the economy (down 4), 44% think they care about helping all groups, not just the few (up 2), 39% think their core values and principles are still relevant (down 2), 42% think they would cut spending in a fairer and more compassionate way than the government (up 1)."

Anthony Wells sums all this up in the following way;

"After five years in opposition, Labour donít really seem to have made much progress at all in nullifying their perceived weaknesses. There is still an underlying strength in their brand Ė a large chunk of the public do think their heart in the right place, that they care about the many not the few, that they are more caring than the Tories. The big weaknesses though remain those negative perceptions about the economy and the belief theyíve lost touch with their ordinary supporters Ė the challenge for the next five years is to address those."

So perhaps the best you can say is that Corbyn is "resonating" with his party's core supporters. Its a start I guess?
