Battle of the Pollsters: What do the European and local election results reveal about the prospects of our political parties?

Synopsis

Following the European and local elections, three leading pollsters will analyse the implications of these results for the next General Election. 

This event, which is part of Policy Exchange’s Road to 2015 series, will offer a unique insight into the key questions for the next year. What do the results mean for each of the political parties, which issues and themes are likely to dominate the campaign, which groups of voters could shift and how will the parties manifestos be affected by these results. It will also be a chance to identify the key swing voters and constituencies.

We will also be inviting each pollster to make a “prediction” about the outcome of the 2015 General Election.

Speakers:

Simon Atkinson
Assistant Chief Executive, Ipsos MORI 

Rick Nye
Managing Director, Populus 

Joe Twyman
