Almost half of all LGBT students are planning on voting Green at the General Election, according to a new poll.
The poll of over 1000 students – carried out at this year’s National Student Pride – hoped to discover where LGBT students are planning on placing their support after recent research suggested that students could be vital in swinging key constituencies during the next election.
The #VotePride poll found that a massive 42% of LGBT students intend on voting Green, with support for Labour close behind at 39%. Lower down the scale, 10% plan on voting Conservative, while 8% plan on voting Liberal Democrats and just 1% for controversial right-wing party UKIP.
