What sort of result for Labour would force Corbyn out? Or is his support too solid at this point among party loyalists to be harmed by one poor election?

Given the chart posted on the previous page, it would seem that Labour's continued rise is contingent on the Lib Dems shedding a significant amount of their support. Is that likely given their Brexit posturing and the importance of that issue this time around vs 2017?

With Labor gaining, it looks like this could end up as some sort of 2017 redux, where conservative PM calls for new elections in light of strong polling numbers, but then ends up with a bare victory and another hung parliament as leftwing voters come home to Labor.

Perhaps Johnson will be able to stand his ground better than May, but if indeed we do get another hung parliament and Labour can't form some sort of coalition to secure power we're right back to where we were before and the Brexit demons continue to haunt the country.

I guess thats Johnson's argument really, but it doesn't paint a great picture to the electorate: "vote for me or else we're going to be trapped in perpetual gridlock"

Is there any chance Corbyn loses support of the party after the election? He's headed for another GE loss most likely, but does that matter?
