The ballot, for Stats for Lefties and Novara Media, discovered that Corbyn as an impartial was second, at 29% of the vote.

Chris Giles, an economics commentator, stated: “Presumably not the result the sponsors of the poll wanted.”

Another social media person stated: “No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, I think we can all agree that the fact Novara and LeftieStats have commissioned this is incredibly, incredibly funny.”

Ell Folan, who runs Leftie Stats, created a GoFundMe to boost funds for the ballot.

On the web page, they stated: “The 2024 general election is here, and Jeremy Corbyn is running to be the independent MP for Islington North.

“But because it is a highly local contest, we have no idea how the voters there currently intend to vote. That’s where you come in. It’s time to do some polling!

“I’m aiming to raise £6,500 by 17th June so I can commission a voting intention poll of Islington North from Survation.

“I want to get this polling done as soon as possible, so I’m aiming to raise £6,500 by the 17th of June. If you can give even a few pounds, that will make a huge difference.”
