A new poll released tonight shows Labour now hold a monstrous 8 point lead over a Tory party in turmoil.

The poll was conducted by Survation, one of the very few pollsters to accurately predict the outcome of June’s General Election.

The results indicate that, were there to be a General Election held now, Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party would secure a landslide victory over Theresa May’s floundering Conservatives.

The news also comes as many in the media and political establishment, including perennially anti-Corbyn former Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair, were beginning to question why Jeremy Corbyn’s party were not further ahead in the polls.

However, the huge 8 point lead shown in this latest poll will come a major slap in the face to Corbyn’s doubters.

Tonight’s latest poll shows Labour up to a massive 45%, whilst Theresa May’s Tories plummeting to just 37%.

And news of tonight’s poll will be seen as vindication by many of Corbyn’s biggest supporters, and the reaction on social media was absolutely unprecedented.

There were of course the customary Corbyn memes and GIFS, with a few recent, and rather appropriate, additions:

There were of course numerous obligatory Corbyn head turn GIFs:

Another had an appropriate message for the naysayers and non-believers:

Some replies were just a little worrying:

Others were more reserved in their response, pointing out the fact that Survation were one of the only polling companies to come out of GE17 with their reputation intact:

Whilst one presumably Tory-supporting Twitter user, with the incredibly ironic Twitter handle ‘@LaughingAtLeft’ was unreservedly incredulous with tonight’s poll:

Not content with airing their grievance in meme-form, this particular Tory supporter came back for more:

But without a shadow of a doubt our absolute favourite response to tonight’s poll was this magnificent video reply:

And, in further good news for Corbyn supporters, given an outrageously incompetent Tory party are so obviously sinking further and further into a Brexit-shaped, scandal-ridden abyss, the general direction of public opinion is only really likely to head in one direction.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
