You tell me.
Labour's policies were very popular in 2019.
According to Yougov, the most popular involved increasing tax on the highest earners. Close to two-thirds (64%) would have supported raising the tax rate on earnings over £123,000 a year from 45% to 50%. Likewise, six in ten supported increasing the tax rate on earnings over £80,000 a year from 40% to 45%.
Most people also supported nationalising the railways (56%) and reserving a third of the space on company boards to workers (54%).
Around half (53%) would have supported a wealth tax, nationalising water companies (50%), and 45% supported taking gas and utility companies into public ownership.
