British Voters Give Jeremy Corbyn And Nigel Farage The Same Poor Approval Ratings

From the International Business Times.
"Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Eurosceptic firebrand Nigel Farage share something in common – their poor approval ratings. The British electorate are dissatisfied with the top politicians, with Corbyn and Farage both earning a net rating of -18."

"David Cameron, however, is well ahead of the leader of the opposition and Ukip head honcho, as the prime minister has a net satisfaction rating of -9, according to Ipsos Mori. The telephone poll, of more than 1,000 people between 23 and 25 January, also found that Tim Farron is struggling to be heard."

"The Liberal Democrat leader has a net approval rating of -10 but 46% of those surveyed did not know whether they were satisfied with the Westmorland and Lonsdale MP or not. The research is not all good news for the Tories, though."
Since the election of Jeremy Corbyn to the post of Labour Leader by such a huge margin, Ukip commentators have made much of Corbyn's 'unelectability' ... despite, of course, Oldham and several local council elections since - one of which saw Labour take a seat from Ukip in Thanet, Farage's 'heartland'.

Disheartening, then, for Ukip to see these numbers. Farage has never denied he is a 'Marmite' character, but Ukip have made great press on occasional leads for Nigel in the popularity stakes. Now that he's level pegging with Corbyn, perhaps Ukip might consider just how popular Nigel actually is.

Perhaps they might come round to our thinking; not only is Farage a toxic character for Ukip, he is, in fact, a toxic character for the Brexit Battle to come.

If Ukip - or any Brexit supporters - wish any chance of success in the coming Referendum, Nigel needs to housetrained. Or muzzled. Or both.
