YouGov’s survey on reaction to the speech


Has this got any electoral significance?

Well here’s the big news. A sample of speech watchers that was made up of 78% Tory voters before the speech started became 84% afterwards. Wow!

The sample was not politically or demographically weighted and I regard it as meaningless fluff in terms of trying to predict the general election.

This is the same as what I said about a similar poll last week after Brown’s speech. The only difference today is that a voting intention question was put and we can see the response.

But how representative of the electorate as a whole are people who both spend the afternoon watching political speeches and then answer poll question about it?

Treat it as fun. I’m reporting here because it will be reported elsewhere.
