  • As a rabid Guardian/Indie reading liberal myself I know I’m a little surprised… 😉

    It would be interesting to see which papers Lib Dem members read.

    So is the single newspaper read by the most Lib Dem voters still the Mail?

    Niklas – The Record is a Scottish newspaper, probably most similar to the Mail?

  • Chris Keating 10th Jun '09 - 12:46pm

    I mean Record similar to the Mirror, not the Mail. Luckily.

    Worth acting on (following Cable once again). The 15% other is high; Clegg’s attention to the local press looks judicious. Possible LibDem voters probably read the same papers as actual LibDem supporters.

    A propos, any data on what TV shows LibDem voters watch and/or radio shows they listen to?

    Since the advent of instantaneous news on radio and television newspapers have increasingly evolved into viewspapers. I stopped buying newspapers many years ago and believe many only continue to do so out of habit.
