|How would you feel if the election outcome was a coalition between the Tories and the Lib Dems (YouGov: May 1 2010)||All voters %||CON voters %||LD voters %|
|I would be delighted||6||6||11|
|I would be dismayed||51||34||43|
|I wouldn’t mind||31||52|
Is the amazing thing that the yellows are not doing worse?
Those sampled were asked about how they would react to a range of possible outcomes. The numbers from the one that actually came about are featured above.
Extraordinarily in view of what happened those LD voters who were “delighted” were out-numbers 4-1 by those who were “dismayed“.
It’s not just the Lib Dem views which are so out of kilter with the coalition that followed but the Tories as well.
