NEW POLL: what will be the result of the next general election?

by Stephen Tall on May 9, 2008

Gordon Brown’s Labour Party took a pounding in last week’s local elections, and a new YouGov poll sees them trailing the Tories by 26% – so calling a general election is probably the last thing on the Prime Minister’s mind this morning. He can, after all, delay going to the country for another two years.

But the question LDV is asking is this: what do you think is the most likely outcome of the next general election? Here are your choices:

> a Labour victory with a Commons majority
> Labour largest single party but no overall majority
> Conservative largest single party but no overall majority
> a Conservative victory with a Commons majority

I know, I know – there’s no option for picking a Lib Dem working majority… use the comments thread for a write-in campaign if you feel strongly.

Result of last poll:

We asked LDV readers: Should deaf couples be allowed to use embryo-screening technology to choose to have a deaf child?

Here’s what you told us:
– Yes they should: 50 (11%)
– No they should not: 378 (81%)
– Don’t know: 37 (8%)
Total Votes: 465 Poll ran: 14th April to 9th May 2008
