The report also found Mr Corbyn’s supporters were more likely to hold anti-Semitic views than the backers of other leading politicians. According to the YouGov poll, published in a Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) report, 35 percent of those who “strongly like” Mr Corbyn agreed with four or more statements classed as anti-Semitic.
Meanwhile 58 percent of this group supported up to two such positions.
Gideon Falter, chief executive of the CAA, claimed “the leader of the once fiercely anti-racist Labour Party is now the candidate of choice for anti-Jewish racists”.
A separate study, mentioned earlier, found 84 percent of British Jews consider Mr Corbyn a danger to their community.
The corresponding figure for Conservative leader Boris Johnson is just 15 percent.

The same survey found 42 percent of Jews in the UK had considered emigrating over the past two years, a never before seen figure.
Of these 85 percent described “anti-Semitism in political parties” as being the main reason they considered a move.
In the YouGov survey supporters of Mr Corbyn were asked if they supported a number of statements deemed racist.
These included classic anti-Semitic statements, such as “compared to other groups Jewish people have too much power in the media”, and more modern examples that compare Israel to Nazi Germany.
