Welcome to our fourth poll of polls in the lead up to the general election on December 12th!

Our first three polls have produced some really interesting results, with Labour looking in the lead for the TSR vote at the moment. Today, we're only 3 weeks away from the Election, and new information is coming out every day about what the parties intend to do if they get into power. The Green Party, Lib Dems, Plaid Cymru and Labour have released their manifestos, and The Brexit Party has talked about creating a 'contract' rather than a manifesto for the people. Have you read any of the manifestos? Has any of these had any affect on your voting preferences? Do you think you'll still vote for the party you thought you would now you can see their manifesto promises?

For those of you who haven't seen this before, we're capturing your votes every Thursday (or Friday... opps :getmecoat:) in the lead up to the election. Our awesome data analyst will be providing us some cool stats so we can see how the vote on TSR is looking, and comparing to the general trends.

Whether you've voted before or not, let us know what you're thinking!

The only way forward is through Labour. Labour will undo the wrongs that the fascist conservative party have inflicted on this country.

The country was tricked and lied to, so Leave could be achieved in the referendum.

i doubt it, i have no idea when they will implement it or if they will implement it at all, but not backing up such a big claim would be detrimental

It will be a conservative majority, i reckon so we can eventually deliver brexit. theres no way i could see Jeremy Corbyn becoming PM. Personally i think Boris is the lesser of two evils.

Blair, LABOUR LEADER, originally gave us uni fees. The policies Labour has come up with, are unfundable. There is no chance they will implement the policy in six months, if at all

Not true, Venezuela fell due to corruption and complete nationalisation. Not what labour are going for at all

I am Labour till i ****ing die. But i know Boris will win and we all have to accept that unfortunately. We Should all stop this Far left fantasy that Corbyn is going to win because he's not. Nobody i know is voting Labour and have no interest because Corbyn is a anti Semite. It's just 18-25 who are. I am Labour and voting Labour but i now accept conservative with have the biggest majority in British politics in the Election whereas labour will probably have 150-180 seats.

Corbyn isn't anti Semitic, he says that he recognises Palestine as a state as it should be.

That will mean that universities are forced to take in more international students which will reduce the chances of home students getting in. Universities have to get the money from somewhere and I personally don't see why the taxpayer should be forced to pay for someone's degree in something like comedy or puppetry at a university no one's ever heard of.

I'm failing to see how this is a strawman argument in any way unless you're admitting that the whole argument is weak, which I can agree with. If you take a look at the Scottish system, it's obvious that my argument holds true. If this was applied to England as well, the system would be even worse because the government simply could not fund the number of students, forcing unis to either take in more international students to make up for the deficit which there would be. Even if the government kept quotas in place for home students, this would only result in unis having less funding and thus being of a lower quality which would deter international students from applying, creating a disastrous spiral. If Labour wanted to get rid of tuition fees for the poorest students doing useful degrees then I could understand that but I don't see why some kid from Surrey should have their degree in agricultural management funded, which is what Corbyn seems to be proposing.
