Most UKIP members left the party after the rise of Brexit Party. They currently have 0 seats in Parliment.

fine to put them in the 'other' category, given their current polling, but you don't have an 'other' category..

Missing the Brexit party is a bigger mistake, given how many want to vote for them and have recently

I considered adding an independent option, but this could vary from left wing to right wing, not giving an appropriate verdict on TSR's opinion.

They would have featured on the list in 2015-17, but times have changed.

Just to clarify, the list only includes the parties that currently have seats in parliment.

The 4th highest polling party is the SNP, who I have included. They are level with the independant parties, who I presume you are talking about.

Because surely the general public wouldn’t be stupid enough to vote for them in a general election. Oh wait, they would be...

'national' - SNP are not a national party. They are a scotish only party. Ignoring that, nationally, the SNP are polling at 4%, whereas the brexit party are polling at 11-12% (infact, nationally the SNP aren't even 5th, they are currently 6th, behind the greens)

+ Why are you restricting it to parties that currently have seats? if that's the case, where is CUK, and the indipendants? etc.

Its a silly way to try and poll opinion. If you want to know how people will vote in an election, you need to give them every option that they will have in an election - otherwise you won't get anywhere close to an answer. Missing a party that 12% of the public will vote for, and missing the many indipendant and local candidates that many (including myself) will vote for, is silly.

In an election - every party (that wants to stand) is an option, not just those who currently have seats..

So having a thread called 'general election' and asking people to vote.. while not having the same options as an election.. is just stupid.

12% of the british public at present polling. 4x as many as will vote for the greens.

For me, you've left me no option to complete your poll. I will likely vote for a local indipedant who stands for my area and its needs.. None of the parties in your list will get my vote.
