    Boris JOhnson is not Trump of course but it's true the same general idea that helped elect Trump, helped pass Brexit so Johnson's big win yesterday is proof at least over there, they have not figured it out yet they still voted for him. God I hope we figure it out before November here.

    One, Corbyn is terrible.

    Two, there’s a theory that Boris and Donald can get more votes because the people who have never voted now see “one of their own” in office and are now excited to support them because they think they’re attacking all the people who are responsible for everything that’s gone wrong for them in their lives.

    Easy...

    Corbyn is a Marxist-Leninist anti-semite.

    You could argue the UK is more jacked up than we are.

    How they believe they are like Trump I have no idea. It's more like an underdog relating themselves to a czar and his family.

    Still baffling to me after 19 years of the Trump presidency.

    Well Corbyn is an anti Semite so that didn’t help. Also this wasn’t a get out to vote issue. Close to 70% of eligible voters came out which is way higher than the US currently. As much as people in the US hate brexit it’s what the people have voted for twice. If it fails the country then it fails.
