UKIP down at 2009 actual vote share in first YouGov 2014 Euro elections poll

January 15th, 2013

Surely Farage’s party should be doing better?

The first YouGov poll fr the June 2014 Euro elections has, somewhat surprisingly, UKIP at exactly the same level as they achieved in June 2009.

Given recent Westminster voting intention polling there had been speculation that UKIP could even finish in first place. Well they might well do that but they have a long way to go if these YouGov findings are right.

There’s little change, as well with the CON and LD shares. The big mover,of course, is LAB which finished four years ago in third place on 16%.

Clearly there’s a long way to go.
