Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

For what it's worth the UK threads on the Something Aweful forums seem to be breaking heavily for Labour activism this cycle. So either terminally online, certainly-not-yet 40 year olds are all in on Labour or it  means nothing.

Yes, I think that the media tend to swan around looking for people to confirm their own prejudices. So you get ton of voxpops from tories and leavers, with a fair sprinkling of Never-Corbyn ex-labour.

But the biggest noise doesn't always reflect a majority.

That has been the major reason why I've tended to pay any attention to the polls which have a bias towards a Tory/leave status quo. With a lowly contracting active electorate, the polls tend to go with what they know, people who've voted regularly before and can be relied upon to do so again. A selection process which entirely misses certain demographics who can be peruaded to vote IF it will make a difference to them.

That's what Labour have done. And the polls can't/won't see it.
