Taking up poll position 1

July 3, 2008

The article "Where has all the passion gone?" (26 June) is interesting but the Opinionpanel poll is certainly not "the first poll of UK university students' political affiliations", even though its trend starts in 2004.

From 2000 to 2005, Mori measured university students' voting intention in the Unite study and found the following:

Labour - Conservative - Lib Dem - Other

%

2000: 36 - 24 - 23 - 17

2001: 42 - 15 - 29 - 14

2002: 34 - 20 - 33 - 13

2003: 28 - 20 - 37 - 15

2004: 28 - 19 - 34 - 19
