Is Clegg out of line with his party supporters?
The dataset from the latest ICM poll is out and showns an interesting break-down of how supporters of the main parties responded to the in/out question on the EU.
As can be seen from the chart Tories were less likely to want to stay in but more likely to want to leave. But just look at the split amongst those telling ICM that they’d vote Lib Dem. A total of 55% say they’d like to stay in but 44% want to leave.
We are talking about very small sub-samples here with all the potential for error that that brings but the overall impact is something of a surprise. I’d have expected a 2:1 split in favour of remaining.
No doubt there’ll be similar polling from other firms and it will be interesting to see if they pick up this up as well.
