A real indicator of the election result

#1
From an on-line polling website, received in my email today.

Thank you for voting in our OneBigVote poll.

Most of the polls you see in national newspapers are based on small samples of responders, nothing like the 28,000+ people who have responded to OneBigVote. Your answers have contributed to some very interesting results that we would like to share with you below.

Conservatives dominate poll with 35% of the votes

Over a third of voters claim that they will opt for the Conservative party in this General Election whilst just under 50% will be split between Labour and the Liberal Democrats. 8% are undecided or will not vote and the 'other' parties sweep up the remaining 10% of voters.
How do you intend to vote in the next General Election?
(How did you vote in the 2001 General Election)

Conservative - 34.73% (21.89%)
Labour - 23.77% (34.31%)
Liberal Democrats - 23.62% (14.35%)
Will not vote - 3.09%
Undecided - 4.81%
Other - 9.98%

1 in 5 choose Michael Howard over Blair as choice for Prime Minister

The poll also revealed that Michael Howard is the favourite candidate to lead the country for the next five years. The current Prime Minister, Tony Blair, is placed third after his party colleague Gordon Brown.

Voters will not change their minds

Voters do appear to have made up their mind, as 91% are not at all likely, or not very likely to change their vote whilst as for the success of the parties campaigning so far, the majority, 64%, feel insufficiently communicated to from the various parties and that their vote is not being fought for.

Looks possible that the liar might actually get the boot.

Pop! Back to the top!

Current votes are as follows:

Won't vote 2.83 %
Undecided 4.69 %
Conservative 35.2 %
Labour 23.23 %
Liberal Democrat 23.84 %
UK Independent 1.75 %
Scottish National Party 2.16 %
Plaid Cymru 0.55 %
Ulster Unionist Party 0.23 %
Sinn Fein 0.27 %
Social Democratic & Labour Party 0.45 %
Democratic Unionist Party 0.38 %
Other party 4.12 %
Veritas 0.3 %

which gives the following seat dirstibution : ###BBC site being funny, when it works I'll edit - unless someone else gets there 1st - enter LAB 23.23 CON 35.2 LD 23.84 OTHER 10.21 (this figure for other is corrected to take out the "don't know" and "undecided" voters - the BBC site then automatically scales it back to 100%####

The OneBigVote findings correlate with the local and Euro election results last year.

I trust MORI and YouGov more than the other polls as they only feature those who will vote. They tend to show a Labour lead of about 3% but I think that hidden Tory voters mean a deficit for Labour of -1% or -2% or so. Labour will remain the largest party with an ungovernable majority of 40 or so, at best. A minority Labour government is also possible.

You can print off sheets from Electoral Calculus to tick off on election night.

Ripper, I'm amazed that your hate for Howard is such that you seem to be willing to forgive Tony his record....

Frankly, I think that Blair out has to be the over-riding concern. At least if Howard gets in, there'll be a chance to vote him out again in 2009; with Blair I'm not so sure...

I know that a lot of people dont approve of howard because of his history, but i am so pissed off with Blair and labour that i would rather see the drunken Gwar in power than blair!

Lets give someone else a chance in power, and then if they are crap, vote them out. It's called democracy!

I will not be voting Labour partly because of Blairs record with the truth and the fiasco of the fox hunting debate (900 hrs for bloody Basil?) but also because I do not want to see grasping Gordon in charge of the country. If there was a box to cross on the ballot paper to say that I didn't like any of the current crop of candidates then that would get my cross.

Hmmmm... according to this Labour are now in 3rd place! Wouldn't that be so good :) Though I do wonder how many folk have voted on this and what "type" of people have voted.

I wish it is true.

However what sort of swing does the tories need to win? is it over 10%?

Next question: there apears to be wide spread postal fraud, can you see a Ukrainian/Uzbekistan style action? Or do you think the populace will just bend over and take it from behind, like they normaly do?

Also I'm stil ltrying to decide who to vote for!
Do I vote taticly and go libdems, as that will most likley lose this seat to labour, and give the tories a chance, or do I go with my heart?

Gahhhhh, the agnoy of choice.

Ask yourself how much you want labour out, and if you do, then vote for the most likely party to beat them in your neighbourhood.

If you want 'regime change' and the lib dems are in the most likely position to take the seat from labour then of course you do.

Remember it's seats that count not overall share of the vote, so if you can help take the seat from the incumbent then it is one less seat that the party he or she represents can win.

Only when PR comes in can we afford to vote with our hearts and expect our chosen party to get the proportional representation that our votes deserve.

But labour dont want that. :roll:

I'm not a natural Labour voter ("no, you surprise me, they cry"), but I am intrigued, mystified, and alarmed that so many are prepared to vote for Tony.

Pensions, the stock market, law & order, immigration are all fcuked - huge amounts of additional money spent on Health, Education, etc for next to no benefit - Forces & Fire Brigade taken for granted - Civil Service ethos bypassed for Crony/SpinMeister benefit, and reduced efficiency as the money pours out to Tony's Cronies - taxes on all fronts due to increase (yet again).

Stop me if you think I should mentio one of his successes here ............... umm, err, none come to mind!.

Selling out to Eurocrats, stuffing UK industry, lying on all sorts of subjects (Tony's speciality, well every subject come to think of it), voting for things they don't believe in (rest of PLP), screwing with various traditions & rights, tampering with our democracy.

Is there no end ? - some might say the Tories weren't much different. If that's the case will the electorate kick Labour out as readily??. It seems not - but why not??.

Pause for breath/pint

Hoorah for whiffler ! Well said

I sound so old and crusty when I say - you think this lot are bad, wait and see what kind of tosh you'd get under a Tory govt

I am not a labour fan either but I do not see Howard and his crones being the silver bullet so many arrse-ites seem to think they will

the money pours out to Tony's Cronies
Like the £95Million that went to Alan Milburn (The former Health Sec) for an NHS scanning contract that nobody will use because it's cr@p.

For the few people in Arrse land that think Tony (praise be upon him) is the bees gonads, please post and let me know how that is not bent, the former health sec signs massive deal with health service 2 minutes after he leaves to spend more time with the kids, and his boss knows nowt about it? Please!

Makes Neil Hamilton's slightly dodgy dealing look like a minor stint of mine sweeping down the local.

I may have missed something here but don't see where whiffler endorses the current shower of sh1te.

Havn't misread Tory for Tony have we old chap?
