New LDV members’ survey now live: your views on Lords reform, the economy, Nick Clegg, the reshuffle & the Coalition’s performance

The new LDV members’ survey is now live. So if you are one of the c.1,300 registered members of the Liberal Democrat Voice forum — and any paid-up party member is welcome to join — then you now have the opportunity to make your views known.

Questions we’re asking this month include:

  • what you think of the Lords reform proposals;
  • what you think should happen if Lords reform falls;
  • what you think the Coalition should do about the economy;
  • your views on Nick Clegg’s leadership and the forthcoming reshuffle;
  • what your preferred election result post-2015 would be;
  • how satisfied you are with leading figures within the Lib Dems;
  • and what you think of the Coalition’s performance to date.

It should take no longer than 10 minutes minutes to fill in. All registered members of the Forum should have today been e-mailed with a unique link to take you to the survey. If you haven’t received yours, or if you are signing up to the Forum now, please drop Ryan Cullen a line at [email protected]

We’ll publish the results in a few days’ time. You can access the results from our previous LDV members surveys by clicking here — and you can access a Google spreadsheet of our ‘Coalition tracker’ and ‘leading Lib Dems’ ratings here.

    The first question might turn out to be otiose. I’ve been reading a Guardian news report on my computer that suggests Cameron is poised to drop Lords Reform. If so the Lib Dems will have supported the Tories’ c ruel and disastrous policies for nothing in return except a meltdown in the polls. Question number two will then become the most significant, I suggest.

    Or question 4.

  • Daniel Henry 3rd Aug '12 - 4:59pm

    Question 5 allows members to put “labour majority” or “conservative majority” as their preferred result.

    I wonder if any will.

  • I’m glad to read that any paid up Party member is eligible to participate, but it is worth remembering, if you fill in the survey ,that the numbers are in severe decline – apparently last year by almost a quarter, 24.8%, an astonishing figure.
    Meanwhile, the transparent Tories are refusing to publish their current membership figures: perhaps unsurprisingly, given that they are estimated by the Campaign for Conservative Democracy to be around 130,000, which is actually a drop of more than a quarter from the previously stated figure.
    So although LibDem members may be the rarer breed and their rate of extinction seems to be less rapid than that of their partners, I wonder whether the results of this survey might not reflect a little less complacency in cohabitation.
