Just under three quarters of people who voted UKIP in last week’s European Elections intend the stick with the party in next year’s General Election, according to a ComRes poll for ITV.
The poll also reveals that a third of people who voted Conservative at the last General Election could see themselves voting UKIP next year, compared to a quarter of people who voted Liberal Democrat and 18 percent of Labour voters.
Of the people who voted UKIP last week, 22 percent said it was because they “don’t like the other parties”. Three quarters said they voted UKIP because it was the party they most agree with.
The poll also confirms that UKIP are still divisive among certain sections of the population, with 44 percent of respondents saying they could never see themselves voting UKIP.
