You've obviously read up on this madman.
The word on the street is that it's going to be a Conservative landslide, but we'll see.
Stranger things have happened.
where hypotheses come to die

You could very well be right! I am not arguing against you, but only offering strange hypotheses, which may become true. Why?

We have already seen the working classes pull surprise upsets with Trump, on Brexit, and elsewhere in Europe. Today, anything goes! We are not living in predictable times anymore.

If you say it really is the word on the STREET, then a big maybe. I can see May winning if her contrived anti-terrorism stance works - but MORE SO, if her stance on anti-Brexit beats that of Corbyn. Mainly THAT would pull together both working class progressives and extreme conservatives, (along with the terrified middle). I am hoping that Corbyn took a strong anti-Brexit stance, but I don't know.

This election resembles the resent one in the USA, except that "Bernie" somehow won to run, and there is no real Trump other than "Bernie," while May represents Clinton co-opting both the Trump anti-terrorism and the Bernie/Trump anti-Foul-Trade message of both Trump and Bernie - yet she is trying to pull for the middle, as Clinton ultimately did, to her downfall. So, really, there is no telling how things will turn out!

Of course, I am hoping Corbyn wins.

These are times of chaos, and paradigm shifts, which I absolutely love.
