A new poll has been published today which suggests that David Cameron is appealing to gay voters in a way that previous Conservative leaders have not succeeded. A survey of 1,800 gay users of the Gaydar site has shown that 30% would vote Conservative; 18% Labour; 18% Lib Dem; 17% wouldn’t vote; and 9% were undecided. Stripping out the ‘wont votes’ and ‘undecideds’ (as most major polls do) gives the following figures:
Lib Dem 24%
This will be encouraging for David Cameron’s party and suggests that the Conservatives have shaken off the image of being “anti-gay” that they held for some time.
I should stress that this has not been conducted by one of the major polling organisations.
UPDATE: Iain Dale has this.
