So the European Elections are this year, and fast approaching. Many voting intention polls predict the winning order will be: Labour, UKIP, Conservative, Lib Dem, Green, but UKIP tends to have a surge of support closer to election time. So, can UKIP win? Also, please take part in the poll above, and feel free to discus other issues relating to the election.

I will be voting UKIP. It's about time the unelected European Commission heard all sides of arguments related to whatever is spoken about in Brussels (even better if other nations vote Euroskeptics), since that's what democracy is all about (if you can elect people that is).

I'll likely vote Lib Dem in the Euro's. The Alliance of Liberals and Democrats agrees with a lot of reforms needed but does not spout Euro-skeptic babble.

I don't believe Ukip will win and even if they do they won't breach 30%.

This'll be the first election I can vote in! Pretty likely to vote Green, unless anything drastic changes my mind.

I think they will either win or come a very close second.

I wish I could vote Labour and Greens. Sorry Greens, no votes for you because your environment policies are misguided.

At an EU level its probably worth seeing what coalition our parties are part of and what the aims of said coalition are.

I think Clegg would be soon out if the Greens beat them. I am a Tory, but I'd be rather amused if UKIP beat Labour.

Eurosceptics of all parties should lend their votes to UKIP for this otherwise meaningless election which could be branded "the referendum that Dave, Nick & Ed won't let us have".

A UKIP victory would provide the clearest possible demonstration that the UK intends to leave the EU if meaningful reforms are not achieved, which would strengthen its hand in any negotiations.

I believe the EU is not reformable because of its commitment to ever closer union and its binding principle that powers, once handed over to Brussels, can never be repatriated.

We ultimately have to choose between federal Europe and national sovereignty and if UKIP are in a position to make those arguments on behalf of Eurosceptics then this can only be good for our democracy.

As a Eurosceptic, I will be voting UKIP, because it really doesn't matter what policies any party has given that their MEPs can't propose legislation.

Being a leftist forum I am largely surprised at the results so far.

It's a liberal forum, there's little evidence that it's economically ruled by the left or right,

I reckon we will get a record turn out... maybe 30%...

Will need to look into which parties will be allied with which others in EU parliament before making my final desicion but it won't be UKIP, their brand of anti-democracy is not for me.

Voting UKIP.

It is the duty of the public to protect our freedoms, and protest against injustices imposed by the EU.

I see it as more of a vote for freedom.

It will be a disappointing election for the three main parties. I'll have to see if any independents draw my eye first, but at the minute I'll vote UKIP as a protest vote.

polls always underestimate UKIP, in the 2009 EU election between January-May UKIP in the polls almost tripled from 7% in January to 15-19% in May
