Farage Reveals Stunning Polling Results

Recommended Posts

People do turn out just to see farage.

And yet there is little other than immigration and the EU that appeals to people with UKIP.

Most of it IMO is because Farage talks like a normal person. If Cameron and even more so Minibrain ripped off their masks to reveal reptilian space creepers, it wouldn't surprise me. much. They talk like they are from another planet.

They have less experience of the real world than Farage, and they are well out of their depth for the positions they hold. Farage believes what he is saying and is very comfortable with the level he is at, as challenger, this comes across well to the public who see the belief behind his position.

I can't be bothered to watch the video. What are these poll results then?

If you can't be bothered to watch a 9 minute video, I can't be ar*ed to type them out :D

Bottom line: UKIP actually ahead of the other parties in lots of constituences that, 4 years ago, they barely made a blip.

I think it's worth noting that most of these constituencies are pretty similar. Thurrock, North Thanet, South Thanet, Boston and Skegness, and Clacton are all decaying seaside towns in the east of England full of not-particularly-affluent older white people. There are not enough constituencies like that in the UK to support a new party of government. Eastleigh is an unusual example of a 4 way split in which UKIP might be able to slip through with 20-odd percent of the vote if the mainstream vote is split evenly between LibLabCon. Farage also mentioned Rotherham, which is full of disaffected working class Labour voters but which UKIP are not leading in.

I think it's worth keeping some perspective on the UKIP phenomenon. Of course 5 MPs in 2015 would be a step forward for UKIP from where they are now, but there are Northern Irish parties with more seats than that. If UKIP get a result like that they will sit powerlessly with the nationalists as a kind of east of England SNP/Plaid Cymru.
