Firstly, we must thank everyone for taking part in our 2nd Anniversary poll compared to our 1st Anniversary poll link to result we have had 948 votes this time around in 24 hours, where as last time it took us 3 days to get 647 votes. So we got 46.5% more votes in a third of the time. You did not disappoint.
Now for the result, Victory for the Class War Party. They had come 7th in last years poll and take Labours crown this year.
Now this poll is just for fun. we are an election site and we deal with numbers and stats so what else could we do but run a poll for our anniversary. Unfortunately we don't have the funds to stretch to doing a commissioned poll through a polling firm (unless one would like to donate one for next year. hint! hint!) So we do the next best thing which is an internet straw poll.
All partys had equal basis, all were informed and it was their choice whether to promote it or not. We had as good an anti cheat feature as we could get but it won't stop those who may wish to. (not suggesting there was any)
So when a voter has such a wide range of partys what do they choose?
Main stream (GREEN,UKIP,CONSERVATIVE,LABOUR,SNP,LIBDEM,PC)
or NON Main stream.
in our 1st poll it was split 339 votes for the main stream out of 647 equals 52.4%
this time around 567 votes for the main stream out of 948 equals 59.8%
We did lose two big vote haulers from last years poll J4MB had no votes and they had polled well last time and the TUSC had also not polled as well as they did last time. Mainly due to neither promoting as much as they did last year. But these you could say were ably made up for by the Class War Party, None of the above (which is now defunct) and Al Murrays FUKP even with those 3 promoting the NON main stream vote share went down.
When only looking at the Main party's and their votes only this is how the vote share was for them (difference from 1st anniversary poll)
Greens 138 - 24.3% (+1.3%)
UKIP 120 - 21.2% (-4.1%)
Labour 114 - 20.1% (-7.6%)
Conservatives 86 - 15.1% (+5.1%)
SNP 58 - 10.2% (+7.8%)
LibDems 41 - 7.2% (-1.6%)
Plaid Cymru 10 - 1.9% (+0.9%)
