Nearly a third of Sheffield students are voting for the Conservatives

Maybe they really hate foxes?

In The Tab’s election polls, it has been found that nearly a third of students will be voting for the Conservatives in Sheffield. Out of those who took part in the survey, 31 per cent claimed to be voting for Theresa May’s Conservative Party, in spite of her calls to bring back fox hunting and her cabinet’s freezing of benefits.

Out of 380 respondents, 47 per cent will be voting for Corbyn’s Labour part on 8th June.

Just 17 per cent will be voting for the Liberal Democrats, a party which has traditionally done well in Sheffield, with former Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, being the MP for Sheffield Hallam since 2005.

Meanwhile, only four per cent will be voting for the Green Party, with former leader Natalie Bennett standing in Sheffield Central next month.

Three of the respondents pledged to spoil the ballot on 8th June, and one respondent suggested they were voting for UKIP.

The majority of respondents claimed that they were voting based on policy, and most believed there wasn’t a better option to vote for, other than their chosen party.

According to Britain Elects, the Conservative party have consistently had the lead in the polls since May 2015.
