Left Foot Forward poll: 34 per cent want a Labour majority

Last week we asked Left Foot Forward readers what outcome they'd most like to see at the General Election. We had 471 responses, and here's what we found out


34.4 per cent of you said you’d like an outright Labour majority,┬ácompared to 10.6 per cent who’d like a Conservative majority. Only 13 of you (2.8 per cent) would like things to stay as they are with another Conservative/Lib Dem coalition.

Seven per cent would like to see a Labour-led coalition with the Lib Dems, but 10.8 would like Labour to lead a coalition with the SNP, and 19.3 per cent (91 of you) would like to see Labour lead a coalition with the Greens.

The second most popular choice after a Labour majority was a three-party coalition with Labour, the Greens and the SNP, which 27.6 per cent of you are hoping for. The least popular choice was a Tory/SNP coalition, which only two of you would like to see.

25 of you would like a Tory/UKIP coalition – half the number who are hoping for an outright Tory majority. Adding the Lib Dems into that coalition sees popularity fall to 1.06 per cent.
