Mumsnet pre-election poll results: 1 February 2010

 

On 1 February 2010 we conducted our first poll of Mumsnetters' voting intentions: 1,317 took the time to tell us how or even if they were thinking of voting. Here are the results.

 

election poll 1

These figures varied according to region.

  • In the South East, the Conservatives held the top position with 33% of the vote to the Liberal Democrats 29.7%
  • In the North East both Labour and Lib Dems were neck and neck with 27%
  • In the South West the Lib Dems were ahead with 27% to the Conservatives 24.5%
  • In London the Labour party showed a strong majority with 36.5% to the Liberal Democrats 23.4% 
     

Leader of the pack

We also asked which of the main party leaders you thought would do the best job of leading the country. The majority (29.7%) of you thought none of them were up to the job. The rest of you voted as follows: 

  • 23.5% David Cameron
  • 20.3% Gordon Brown
  • 15.1% Nick Clegg 
     

Subsequent poll results

Mumsnet carried out a second poll after the Budget on 24 March 2010, a third poll after the first leaders' debate on ITV and a fourth poll following the second leaders' debate on Sky. 

* The Mumsnet election surveys are only open to Mumsnetters who have been registered members since before 1 February 2010. Participants who do not meet this criteria do not have their answers included in the survey analysis.
