Labour are more trusted than the Conservatives on EVERY policy issue prompted.

Which party do voters trust most on…?

(Lab | Con)

NHS (42% | 17%) Education (39% | 20%) Economy (38% | 23%) Immigration (33% | 21%) 🇺🇦 (31% | 24%)

    I just worry how 17% of people would think the Tories would support the NHS… almost 1 in 5 people thinking “yeah, they’re doing a great job” in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

    Why did they ask about COVID but not Palestine? Galloway was able to win a by-election on the issue alone, its omission is strange and kinda suspect.

        So why did Ukraine get its own question?

          Thats fair, I didnt spot that. At a guess I’d say because the UK is heavily involved in Ukraine whereas Israel/Palestein is an issue where what the UK says matters little and it has basically no leverage on either side.

    I’m surprised that confidence in the tories is still into two figures. They have shown that they have utter contempt for the general population and have been deliberately salting the Earth because they know they’ll not win another election.

    When Labour haven’t fixed things within six months they’ll be beating about how terrible they are and we should have given them another chance.

    If we vote them back on we deserve every crappy thing that happens to us.

    Our children and their descendants will never forgive us.

    Labour above Greens on the environment. Um, OK…

      That’d be the same Green Party who oppose nuclear energy, whose local politicians oppose solar farms due to NIMBY issues, who opposed HS2…

      They talk a good talk, and they’ve got the branding down, but their actual track record on genuine environmental policies is pretty blotchy.

    It would be good to know the actual questions asked, it’s suspicious how low green/libdems/reform are in almost everything.

    Shouldn’t a question like this have a neutral midpoint with trust/distrust on either side? This looks like it’s penalising parties people are less aware of the policies of.

    Edit: oh, it’s the bit at the top “which party would you trust most to:”

    Naff question really what was the point of including the smaller parties there? Should have just been the main parties for that question or a graded version with all parties.

    Oh boy can’t wait for them to completely squander it because they’re just another party owned by the same corporations and donors that own the Tories, and meaningful change is completely outside the purview of even the legislators who want it.

      It’s because it’s not a ranking question but a winner questions: Who do you trust most to handle…

      That way you’ll basically get answers that are aligned with an opinion poll.

      If they instead had asked: “How much do you trust X to handle…” where voters had to answer for EACH party, you’d have a more trustworthy poll.

      This poll, in my humble opinion, is CRAP.

      Yes.

      But, if a third party actually gains any real traction, its policies will be swiped by one of the big parties, which is how we ended up with Brexit.
