Miliband seems likes he wants to win more than Cameron, poll finds

28th April, 2015 11:18 am

Yesterday David Cameron gave a speech in which he attempted to show his ‘passion’ by saying he’s ‘pumped up’ for the rest of the election campaign. However, prior to this display of election fervour from the Tory camp, YouGov did some polling for The Times Red Box on this very subject.

Ed Miliband

They asked respondents:“of David Cameron and Ed Miliband, which one comes across as wanting to win the most.” Miliband got almost double the amount of votes that Cameron did, at 43% to 25%.

Of course, if Cameron continues to give the kind blustering displays of zeal he did yesterday, this could all change before polling day. And none of this means people will vote Labour just because they think Miliband seems like he wants to win more.

But coming across as invested and determined, is no bad thing.

YouGov also asked: “who seems to be enjoying the campaign the most?” Neither Miliband or Cameron came out particularly well, with 13% and 7% respectively. Although it is worth noting, Miliband again got almost double the percentage Cameron did. The SNP’s Nicola Sturgeon was rated as the politician who seems to be enjoying the campaign the most, with 34% (unsurprising, considering her party’s standing in Scottish polls) while UKIP’s Nigel Farage got 16%.
