LibDemVoice’s surveys of party members signed-up to our discussion forum have been running for over three years now. (I posted yesterday the final set of figures from our most recent poll.)
Our surveys are a way of testing members’ views on a variety of hot topics. And as they’ve been running throughout the first two years of the Coalition they’re also an interesting record of changing views on how the Coalition is regarded within the party.
If you would like to take part in the LibDemVoice surveys, there are simply two steps you need to follow:
1) Be a current Lib Dem member, and
2) Sign up to LibDemVoice’s members’ forum.
You will then be emailed a unique link to our next survey enabling you to offer your verdict on a range of current matters.
And I have compiled a Google spreadsheet summarising the results from our Coalition tracker — together with the satisfaction ratings for Lib Dem ministers and other leading party figures — which you can view here.
We’ve always been careful not to make too great claims for the surveys: we simply don’t know how accurately they reflect the views of the Lib Dems’ c.60,000 members.
All we can say is that we typically receive over 550 responses from the 1,200+ members subscribed to the Voice’s Forum, making it the largest regular and independent sample of opinion among current party members, and that the results in the past have predicted the winners of the contests for Party President, and the result of the conference decision to approve the Coalition agreement.
We hope you find the surveys interesting — certainly political journalists are interested in what our members have to say! And, as ever, if you have ideas or suggestions for topics and/or questions you would like to see included please do get in touch: [email protected]
