    People will denounce the poll because of where it's from - but DM readers represent a lot of Middle England so it's pretty significant as these are the people paying for student subsidisation.

    This is a nice indicator for students to realise they are a very very small part in the big world! Time for them to wake up and get on with it!

    Of course all the results will not be in favour of the students every article in the daily mail has been constantly highlighting all the negative behaviour of the student protests (the majority were peaceful), and the people who read it are willing to give an opinion without even knowing much about the subject (from my point of view). The picture next to the poll is of students burning something for God's sake, what does anybody expect?

    And have you seen how dodgy the polls are on there:

    E.g. a poll about whether the Euro will survive 61% think it is 'finished' and only 39% think it will survive.

    If this represents what a lot of people in England think, then I am ashamed

    So turning the poll around would be an even bigger achievement, and send a bigger message to the country, surely? If people go along with what they read in the paper enough to not read around and see the full story, then seeing a poll showing that so many people support students then they'll go along with that. Turn peoples shallow minds to your own good.


    Poll has gone to 34% and 66% now

    But according to the Daily Mail, candlelit dinners give you cancer. Is this Middle England's paper of CHOICE?

    The daily mail readers never supported the protests, in fact they supported the raise even before the protests (check the comments when the raise was announced) so I doubt that the protests have had an affect on their opinion. Most of their readers are a horrible bunch. I'd like to think that they don't represent the majority of the public.

    To be fair, we can hardly be certain that it won't (though it probably won't).

    Yes, but this poll is on the same page as the poll 'who would win in a fight: Ian Botham or Ian Chappell?' so forgive me if if don't take it to seriously. Daily Fail.

    Source... it's about halfway down the page.

    But did they support the students in the first place?

    Those that have voted no in this poll would have voted no for the above question.

    It's trying to make it seem as if people have stopped supporting students because of this rioting minority, whereas people in favour of the students are, generally, aware that the violence is a minority and will continue to support the peaceful majority.
