With our 3rd General Election in 4 years just around the corner, undertook a flash poll to understand where its readers were thinking about putting their “X” when they visit the voting booth in December. asked its readers which way they planned to vote with the choices being Conservative, Labour, Lib Dem or “Other” which could include Nationalist parties like the SNP or single-issue parties like the Brexit Party.

There were only four options permitted – this the maximum number of choices Twitter allows its users for polls.


In total, nearly 360 people took part in the survey, which lasted just over two days via a Twitter poll.


Labour comes out on top – but only just

Overall Labour, led by Jeremy Corbyn, came out on top with 38 per cent of the vote but was closely followed by the Liberal Democrats, headed by Jo Swinson. The Conservatives, with the incumbent Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, managed to grab hold of 15 per cent of the vote, while “other” which would you include parties such as the Greens, UKIP, The Independent Group For Change, Brexit Party, Plaid Cymru

How will you vote?
