  • The public are split on whether mandatory voting in elections (32%) or compulsory politics lessons in secondary schools (32%) would be the best way to encourage participation in British politics. 24% say neither of these options.
Current Issues

  • Asked in March about possible options for Trident when it reaches the end of its useful life, a quarter of the public (24%) were in favour of Britain giving up all nuclear weapons completely.
  • A higher proportion of Brits (31%) believe that when Trident comes to an end it should be replaced with an equally powerful nuclear missile system.
  • 29% think Britain should retain a nuclear missile system, but it should be less powerful and cost less than replacing Trident.
