Donald Trump’s surprise victory in the US presidential election has given hope to a surprising group of people - Jeremy Corbyn supporters.

Polls, including those crunched by The Huffington Post, had largely pointed to Hillary Clinton being elected the 45th President of the United States. But they were wrong.

With polls in the UK showing Corbyn trailing fair behind Theresa May’s Conservative Party - some fans of the Labour leader took heart from Trump’s win. 

When Trump won the Republican primary nomination, he did so against the predictions of many pundits, but in line with months of polling data.

His win Tuesday, by contrast, represents a stunning upset, going against the vast majority of public polling and every major political forecast. Although predictions of Clinton’s margins varied, few doubted she would win.
