to wonder how all those who voted Lib Dem in 2010 are going to vote in the 2015 GE?

Curious to know if the Lib Dem vote will collapse as predicted or not.

If you don't want to say which party you are going to vote for instead of the Lib Dems, please can you just say "yes" or "no" as to whether you will be voting for the Lib Dems again, "yes" meaning you are going to vote Lib Dems again and "no" meaning you aren't.

In my case, I voted Lib Dems and I will be voting either Labour or Green in 2015.

Voted Lib Dem (in Tory safe seat) but also because I think we need constitutional and electoral reform, and because of their pledge on student fees.

I will almost certainly be voting Labour next time. I'm a natural labour voter anyway - it's just wasted round here as there has been a Tory MP since 1945 in this constituency (and he's a particularly irksome specimen sadly.)

If we had some form of PR I'd vote Labour / Green

I voted Lib Dem.

This time round I'll vote Green. I think the Greens will see a sizeable surge and could be potential coalition partners.

I voted lib dem, never again.
Still not sure who to vote for though, probably Labour but still looking.

Lib Dem to Green here (Labour stronghold).

Will vote Labour, tactically. I would prefer to vote Green or Socialist but frankly don't dare to.

Cherrypi Fri 28-Nov-14 18:24:07

Green I think.

Phalenopsis Fri 28-Nov-14 18:24:39

I voted Lib Dem and we ended up with a Tory MP! I'm voting Labour this time but I don't have much faith in any of them tbh.

WorriedMutha Fri 28-Nov-14 18:25:53

Lib dem before and again next time (though live in a safe Tory seat). It isn't that I think they are great but I just cannot in conscience vote for any of the other parties.

Topseyt Fri 28-Nov-14 18:27:01

No from me.

I've certainly voted for them before, but I'm not really impressed with their performance in the coalition though, so certainly not in the coming General Election.

I'm not enamoured with any of the main parties if I am honest, but have still to decide how to cast my protest vote.

Tobyjugg Fri 28-Nov-14 18:28:17

Probably Green. Tuition fees have killed any possibility of me voting LibDem. I'm in a seat which is usuallly a straight Tory/LibDem fight.

Pooka Fri 28-Nov-14 18:29:07

Voted lib dem though am naturally a labour voter. But live in Tory safe seat and only the lib dems have historically come close to ousting Tory mp.

Won't tactically vote in future, not after coalition. So will vote labour even though not a cat in hell's chance of getting in.

Only circs under which would vote differently would be if UKIP had chance of getting in. But the Tory majority is so huge I cannot see that happening.

MaidOfStars Fri 28-Nov-14 18:32:24

I will not be voting for Lib Dems again, and will not do so in future while Nick Clegg is in charge (I will add that I have voted for Lib Dems candidates in the intervening local and Euro elections, as that seems less party politics to me).

I will never vote Tory.

So that leaves me with Labour/Greens. It is not a great choice. My constituency was a swing from Labour to Tory in 2010, and is now a marginal seat with good voter power. Therefore, the tactical option is clearly Labour and I think this is where I'll be putting my cross.

LoisHatesChristmas Fri 28-Nov-14 18:34:25

Another for Green.

Timeandtune Fri 28-Nov-14 18:35:46

In have voted Lib Dem all my life and was a party member for over 35 years until I resigned in 2013. I will vote labour in future and may join the party too

AWimbaWay Fri 28-Nov-14 18:36:46

No, I will vote Labour, a bit of a wasted vote in my extremely Tory constituency though.

SugarPlumTree Fri 28-Nov-14 18:41:44

My constituency is a marginal seat with just a handful of votes between Lib Dem. I voted Lib Dem in 2010 and always have since I moved here but will not be again. Not sure who I will vote for as am very disillusioned with them all. Labour got a very small percentage last time and don't really feature .

Our seat will pretty definitely go blue next time. I am not voting tactically, I am pissed off with the whole system. Think DH feels pretty much the same.

ocelot41 Fri 28-Nov-14 18:42:05

Am in a safe Labour seat so will vote Green to indicate that I want the party to go further left, not right

FluffyMcnuffy Fri 28-Nov-14 18:44:16

Just out of interest do the people who are going to vote green know what's go on in Brighton?

TheFallenMadonna Fri 28-Nov-14 18:45:40

I am in a safe Tory seat. I will vote Labour I think. I voted Labour in the local elections. First time not voting Lib Dem.

I voted lib dem but am very unlikely to do so again, not as it currently stands anyway.

Not sure who I'll vote for yet. Certainly not Tory though.

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHorrid Fri 28-Nov-14 18:51:10

Another safe Tory seat here, not sure at all. Could vote lib dem again or maybe even Tory (but that would only be in the hopefully unlikely event of ukip getting a sniff of a chance where I live).

Viviennemary Fri 28-Nov-14 18:51:45

I cannot think why anybody would vote LD. Because they may make an alliance with Labour or may make one with the Tories. So in other words they don't really have policies of their own or if they do they can easily drop them like they did with the student loans promise. They're finished.

stinkyfluffycat Fri 28-Nov-14 18:52:37

Not voting for them again after what they did last time! Want to vote Green, might vote Labour as best chance of keeping Tories out.
