If a general election is called would you vote Lib Dem to stay in the EU?

If there is a general election the Lib Dems have stated they will run on a platform to keep the UK in the EU if they win. The Tories obviously won't do that and the Labour party can't really run on that platform I don't think since so many Labour voters voted to leave. I'm curious if the Lib Dems would attract a lot of support since they would effectively be turning the general election into a second referendum.

But I'm a Lib Dem voter anyway.

I do anyway because of where I live.

I would, but I'm Lib Dem anyway

If they stood here(NI) then yes.

I honestly see a general election with clearly laid out stalls of what people are voting FOR as the only sane way forward.

A lot of people voted for them on their promise of free higher education. That didn't go so well. I'd love to think there was a party of hope, but it really isn't the party with the history of really recent lying and spinelessness. I wish it were otherwise.

Well all the PM (whoever he or she is) has to do before the GE is issue the A50 notice.......

What would happen if it was issued at 9.59 pm on Polling day? hmm

Plus without PR they stand no chance where I live (farmers, rural, huge new rearranged boundaries)

Hell no.

I wouldn't trust the Lib Dems to feed my cat whilst I was on holiday.

I don't have a cat
