YEP’s pre-election poll is an eye opener

Have your say

There are less than three months left until the country goes to the ballots.

Many are predicting record turnouts for the General Election on May 7.

And as polling day looms closer, the Yorkshire Evening Post has conducted its very own survey to get into the minds of our readers and gauge their political predictions, concerns and vote-winning factors.

With almost 600 people taking part in our poll, it is obvious that you care.

See the YEP next week for the first in our series of special pre-election features, when we will reveal the results of our survey, and lay out all the statistics that should make the contenders sit up and listen if they are to secure your vote.

We will also be going behind the numbers to reveal the issues that matter the most to you, whether it’s immigration, the economy or the future of the NHS.

Our snapshot survey will also reveal how much of a role Westminster politics plays in your life. Do you intend to vote or do you think it’s pointless to bother because ‘they are all the same’? Do you know which party you will be putting a cross next to, or are you a floating voter? Which age group is most likely to vote, and which issues will influence their choice most? We also asked readers who they think will be entering Number 10 as Prime Minister after May 7 - and who they would LIKE to see in the hot seat.

Jeremy Clifford, editor of the Yorkshire Evening Post, said: “We know this is the most important election in a generation and the results are going to be unpredictable.

“Our survey shows how interested the people of Leeds will be in the election, and the results make for fascinating reading.”
