Younger voters turning back on Corbyn

The recent poll showing that Jeremy Corbyn is failing to inspire traditional Labour voters in Wales comes as no surprise.  Knocking on doors from Nelson to Bedwas, we have found a similar pattern where older more traditional voters have been turning away from the politics of Mr Corbyn.  However where our experience is different is the  attitude of younger voters, who appear to be more likely to support Corbyn according to the poll.  To the contrary, we have  seen a number of young people who have already become disillusioned with the way Corbyn is performing as a leader and failed to take the whole Labour party with him on a range of issues such .as the bombing of Syria.
