LDV Members’ Survey – MPs’ expenses (5): how Nick Clegg’s performed

On Tuesday evening, LDV emailed those Lib Dem party members signed-up to our private discussion forum inviting them to take part in a survey focusing on MPs’ expenses. Many thanks to the 240+ of you who have so far completed it; we’ve been publishing the results on LDV over the last few days. You can catch up on the results of all our past exclusive LDV members’ surveys by clicking here.

Today we’re publishing the result that always prompts a bout of nerves in the leader’s office – how LDV’s party member readers view Nick Clegg’s performance. LDV asked: In your view, and solely on the specific issue of MPs’ expenses, do you think Nick Clegg has performed well or badly over the past fortnight as Lib Dem leader?

Here’s what you told us:

>> 32% – Very well
>> 51% – Quite well
>> 7% – Neither well nor badly
>> 4% – Quite badly
>> 0.5% – Very badly
>> 2% – Don’t know / Other

So, on this issue at least, it’s a general thumbs-up for Nick, with 83% rating him as having performed quite/very well over the past fortnight, and fewer than 5% thinking he’s performed quite/very badly.

(The comments submitted by those who completed the survey are in the process of being uploaded to LDV’s private members-only discussion forum).
