Welcome to our first poll of polls in the lead up to the general election on December 12th, 2019! We're looking to see the trends of how people are planning to vote from now until the election; we'll be putting out a new 'Poll of Polls' every Thursday,

It's been a unbelievable lead up to this election, and we want to see how close TSR votes are to the actual election results... do you think they'll be similar, or completely different? And how likely do you think it is that your party will come into power?

Let us know what you're thinking - who are you planning to vote for?

Also, anyone who chooses Change UK should be awarded a Nobel prize for delusion.

I see it mainly as a choice between Johnson and Corbyn, so I'd go Conservative despite having a generally negative view of them.

If it was a meaningless election, Yorkshire Party.

I will be voting for Labour! The only party committed to scrapping university tuition fess, a People’s Vote, and seriously concerned with climate change - seeking to combat it through a Green Industrial Revolution.
I am glad to see other TSR users feel the same way.

I don't have a vote (as a 16 year old), but if I could vote I would definitely vote for Liberal Democrats, the only party who are actually committed to stopping Brexit, who will give 16-17 year old's the vote we deserve, who will actually improve the British economy, and reform the outdated system of government currently in place, and who will protect our rights. Go Liberal Democrats!

I feel like I’m going to have to, VERY unwillingly, vote Conservative...

Labour want to delay/mess up what could’ve been a relatively easy exit from the EU. They seem to be virtue signalling only to get into power. eg. Attempting to get the vote for 16-17 year olds. I wouldn’t be opposed to another referendum but I feel it’ll set a dangerous precedent for future referendums (whatever they may be about).

Lib Dem want to cancel Brexit; which at this point is ridiculous! Cancelling Brexit at this point is like texting your GF you’re going to break up with her but then seeing her on Monday and being like “soz bbe xxx you complete me!”

I see voting Conservative, giving them a majority in Government, will actually allow them to deliver Brexit with the “shiniest of turds” deals compared to what the other parties plan to do.

Once again, I’ll make it clear I DONT want to vote Tory but I feel like it’s the only way forward regarding Brexit.

Wow. Remember this is not about Brexit only. It’s about whoever runs the country for the next five years.

Depends where I decide to vote.

At home, I'll vote Lib Dem as they have a chance of beating Labour.

At university, I'll reluctantly vote Labour to keep the Conservatives out.

As would I, however I believe this election is about voting tactically. If we do want to stop brexit then Labour is probably a better option than Lib Dems. After all, they are actually proposing a second election, with remain as an option (despite not having an official position on the matter). As we have seen through last General Election, the left wing was just too split, however Labour remains the largest. Lib Dems may increase their popularity, but most likely not enough to beat the tories, and it is wishful thinking to think that there will be a large number of tory remainers who will flock to vote for the Lib Dems. Moreover, there is the North East, who will most likely back Labour, as Lib Dems were in a coalition with the Tories, meaning the Labour party has that support, and futhermore all the main cities are Labour heartland where there will be a vast number of seats.

As a young adult, who is in college, working multiple jobs, I'd be voting for the Lib dems.

Labour promise too much and don't have any evidence for it.

Conservatives please XD

Why is conservative the first option? Surely parties should be listed alphabetically.
