With our 3rd General Election in 4 years just around the corner, THEGAYUK.com undertook a flash poll to understand where its readers were thinking about putting their “X” when they visit the voting booth in December.
THEGAYUK.com 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.
