A poll just published shows that 75% of Labour supporters say that the party should not enable May's deal or any other form of Leave. It's a big (25k) sample so I don't think the result can be questioned. Support for May's deal is at 22% amongst the electorate as a whole rising to 28% amongst Leave supporters. Labour supporters also say that they will "punish" the party should they give support to the governments efforts to leave the EU.

Of course whether Corbyn is pig headed enough to ignore this is quite another matter, but I believe that he needs to bear in mind the nature of the punishment. It is almost certainly one that will deny him power if and when he does get his GE. The other poll finding was that the split between Remain and Leave is now 54/46.
