Sun readers defy Murdoch over hung Parliament and election debates

April 26, 2010 No Comment

According to the Sun, a hung Parliament would be a disaster for Britain, while David Cameron "left his opponents reeling" in the second election debate.

The Sun's online polls tell a different story. (And, unlike the Daily Mail's, these are not easy votes to polljack. You must go through a proper sign-up process with email verification and provide personal demographic information).

In a Sun poll that just closed this morning (suspiciously soon after the yes vote changed from just under 50% (last night) to just over 50%), they asked: "Would a hung Parliament be bad for Britain?".

Just 50.6% say yes. 46.2% say no - with the rest as don't knows. So fairly evenly split on the "disaster".

When it comes to the second general election debate, the Sun readers, unlike Sun HQ, thinks Clegg won it. This is the vote as I type this:

  • Nick Clegg 46.3%
  • David Cameron 36.6%
  • Gordon Brown 14.2%
  • There was no clear winner 1.6%
  • I didn't watch the debate 1.4%

A crushing Clegg win then ...

Hope for us all yet

Maybe the Sun's attempts to bully the British public (and other newspapers) into backing Cameron aren't working, just as they misjudged the mood over Brown's handwritten letter to a dead soldier's mother. Let's hope so.
