Corbyn may win, but will a majority of Labour members, registered and affiliated supporters vote for him?

I wonder how many people in Labour will start wheeling out the sort of ‘but he didn’t really win a majority’ arguments which are often deployed by Labour against the Tories. After all, even if Corbyn wins a stonking 60% of first preferences on a very healthy 75% turnout, that would still be less than half of the Labour leadership electorate (45%) voting for him.

‘He may be our leader, but he’s not got majority support’, coming soon to social media feeds and anonymous quotes near you…
