Dear Ed,

Could we please have a 'General Election voting intentions' poll?

Would be quite interesting to see how closely (or not) our figures relate to actual numbers on Friday morning...

an interesting idea sp, but you may have to be prepared for some responses along the lines of 'it's between me and the ballot box as to whom i vote for'
Need to be sharpish, polling stations open in 13 hours...
It's between me and the ballot box as to whom I vote for.
Question Author

We've had a previous poll (I think before the European elections) which was quite well received.

If I recall correctly, on AB, the Conservatives won by a landslide.

fair enough then - hopefully the ed will see your request
Only if he includes the Communist Party and Mebyon Kernow on the ballot.
We have had this before but I am not sure what purpose it can have.

AB is predominantly a right-wing place and doesn't reflect the neck and neck situation that the Polls have been in for ages, if debates on here are anything to go by !
Aye, I'm keeping my vote secret
Excelsior, polls on here are just as anonymous as in the ballot box. There is now need for an ABer to comment on their choice.

I agree it would be an interesting comparison to make.
LOL Steg !

And me !
Mikey, the debates on AB are largely held in the News section which is a rarefied place that many mere mortal ABers fear to tread.

A sad state of affairs in my book but tis the case IMHO.

I agree with Eccles, Mikey news is frequented by at a guess the same 30 people every day, there are 1000s of ABers (apparently) who we have no idea of their leanings.
I think it might be fun but Ed would need to get his skates on.
Eccles...the News section, like the Ritz Hotel, is open to everyone !

But its not the only place where controversial debates take place surely ?
Ed may have seen your request/suggestion more easily in his Blog topic.
The News section may be open to all, I seriously question if it is welcome to all.

However my point is that there are many ABers across the categories and they quite probably make up a wide cross section of society.
Would that be a poll on who will win, or a poll of who you voted for?

Probably different result.
Point taken Eccles ! But most of us over on the News Section are really quite nice you know...we rarely bite !
No, you just chew over the same fat, time and time again........
A lot of people won't decide until the pencil is in their hands.

A bit like me in a restaurant - I can't decide until the waiter looks at me and says "and for you, sir?"
// I'm keeping my vote secret //

so your avatar is a false flag, steg?
