Mumsnet Election - Poll Results

 

ballot boxBack in February 2010, we decided to find out how Mumsnetters were thinking of voting in the coming election. Since then, we've run five surveys polling on everything from your voting intentions and who you thought performed well during the debates to whether you think Brown, Cameron or Clegg would make the best Prime Minister.

Our first survey took place on 1 February, the second following the pre-election Budget and the third, fourth and fifth polls opened directly after the televised leaders' debates on ITV and Sky. 

As you can see, there was a significant swing towards the Lib Dems and Nick Clegg following the two televised leaders' debates on 15 and 22 April, mainly at the expense of the Conservatives, but also taking voters from the Greens. However, following the final TV debate, both the Tories and Labour began to erode that swing to the Lib Dems.

And as 6 May approaches, it looks as though Mumsnetters are gradually stepping off the Don't Know block and choosing who they'll plump for at the ballot box.
