65 per cent of farmers would prefer Tories win a majority on Friday, FG poll finds

Participants were asked what their preferred election result would be out of a Conservative majority, a Conservative-led coalition, a Labour majority or Labour-led coalition.

 

65.8 per cent of respondents voted for a Conservative majority, 11.4 per cent for a Conservative-led coalition, 16.3 per cent for a Labour-led coalition and just 6.5 per cent for a Labour majority.

 

The Twitter survey, which ran from the morning of December 10 to the morning of December 11, had 986 respondents.

 

Several farmers voiced their concerns about the result of the poll, with one describing it as ‘crazy’, while another said it was ‘turkeys voting for Christmas’.

Others complained about the choice on offer, saying they would prefer a hung Parliament or to vote for ‘none of the above’, while FG Ploughing Through Brexit podcast co-host Will Evans used slightly more colourful language.

 

 

Parties are today making their last pitches to voters, as the country prepares to go to the polls tomorrow (December 12).

 

Polling centres will operate from 7am to 10pm, with the final results expected in the early hours of December 13.
