I know we've touched upon it a few times in the last few days but I thought I'd try and put some numbers on how much of an uphill battle Starmer has with the media.
About four million people read the Daily Mail and the Sun in print every day. Online, the number is closer to thirty million. There is also a network effect from that. Its not just about readership, its about the fact that many newspaper readers talk to friends and family about what they read in the papers.
I personally think it is absolutely remarkable that Starmer is
doing so well not doing worse.
