Nearly half of finalists at Birmingham confessed to loving David Cameron.

40 per cent are planning to vote Conservative in this year’s election, according to a survey carried out by High Fliers.

Labour came in second with 31 per cent, and the Green Party third on 20 per cent.

The Lib Dems and UKIP trail far behind with only five and one per cent respectively.

All this makes Brum the eighth most pro Conservative uni, nine points above the national average of 31 per cent.

However, Birmingham had exactly the average level of Labour and UKIP support.

The poll surveyed over 13,000 final years from 30 different universities.

Nationally, Conservative and Labour polled the same, though the Conservatives were the most popular party in 14 of the 30 unis.

Labour were most popular in only 11.

A third of nonchalant finalists admitted they simply plan to vote for the party their parents support, and a sixth would consider standing as an MP in the future.

Only a fifth said most of their friends didn’t plan on voting.

Don’t forget to vote on May 7. There will be polling stations all over Birmingham, including in Selly Oak and Edgbaston.
