Mumsnet, with Ipsos MORI, has conducted an in-depth study into women's voting intentions. Key findings include:
- The Conservatives trail by 13 points among female voters (three times higher than among men)
- Women nevertheless prefer Cameron (43%) to Miliband (34%)
- Six out of 10 women who backed the Lib Dems in 2010 are no longer supporters
- Fewer than half polled believe any of the three main party leaders are interested in women's concerns
Justine Roberts, Mumsnet founder and CEO, says: "This study shows just how crucial appealing to women in the run-up to the election is going to be, as currently so many are unaligned or unenthused politically. Clearly the women's vote is still all to play for."
