On a pure stereotype level, I'd say:

Labour: Typically working class. More likely to live in the north.

Liberal Democrats: Probably the least stereotyped. Hard to predict since they've lost so much of their vote.

Green: Care about the environment. Quite left-wing. Disillusioned with the establishment. Quite popular among students.

UKIP: A little bit racist. Wants to clamp down on immigration, and dislike the EU.

Conservatives: Typically middle or upper class. Quite posh. More likely to reside in the South East of England.

Not that I'm endorsing these, but this is often what the stereotypes say about each party.

UKIP: Pretty much sums up everyones stereotype of UKIP voters (the stereotype rings true round here though)

labour - poor, jealous, thick people

conservative - intelligent, rich, educated, sophisticated

liberal democrats - impossible to stereotype

green - lazy stoners who want to abolish money

UKIP - the poor man's conservative party

this was a good read

I didn't write these. but they were so good I had to copy them


" Plaid Cymru: Have a stupid name, obsessed with the necromancy of a long-forgotten and incomprehensible language, physically incapable of doing anything constructive in power. Basically think of all the stereotypes of a Welshman and imagine a whole horde of them. Charming, eh?

Respect: A hodge-podge alliance of aging, unwashed liberals ready to scream "Military-Industrial Complex" if they so much as see a soldier walking to the newsagents, and bearded Muslim Fundamentalists hell-bent on imposing Shariah law in London.

Sinn Fein: Terrorists who have accidently become politicians. Never show up for work, not that they would get let in if they did. "

"SNP (Scottish National Party): Bunch of whiny Scots with colossal egos who watched Braveheart and decided that it should be brought into the 21st century. Basically Labour but more mawkishly nationalistic and more hostile to criticism. Leeches money off English people while claiming they don't need it. Too obsessed with trying to get independence for Scotland to concentrate on actually running Scotland."

green - want the NHS to give more priority to crystal healing than heart transplants, are inherently suspicious of anything that could conceivably benefit humanity.

UKIP - pissed off and even more racist Tories who hate those foreigners (sorry Nigel Farage's annoying Cheshire Cat grin sums up UKIP better than any other image)

Poor, jealous thick? Since when did trying to help the less earning make you poor? Since when did helping rich people make you intelligent?


As long as you want it and work for it hard enough, there is not a thing you cannot achieve. Mobile

Thats even worse. The question was about the parties it self. Why are labour voters thick and poor? And why are conservative voters intelligent? Thats really stupid. Voting for a particular party doesn't make you stupid or clever.

Labour actually lost because their voters are too lazy to go out and vote

just sums them up
