Well many Corbyn supporters and wider left-leaning voters are surprised/delighted that the Labour leader managed to make significant gains on the Conservative party.
Theresa May could not secure a majority and recent polling has shown that Labour could indeed win an election if it was held now.
It was such a dramatic turnaround but how did he manage it? This Channel 4 video is definitely worth a watch, to see how Corbyn came from nowhere and shook the electoral landscape of the UK and beyond.
For the many not the few seemed to chime with the electorate and crucially the youth of this divided island.

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
