On the morning of 9th June, as the final results of Britain’s snap General Election of 2017 rolled in, GQR began fieldwork on the Trades Union Congress’s post-election poll of Great Britain. It captured the views of over 3,000 people on the state of the country, the main parties and the key policies discussed during the election campaign.

At the bottom of this page you will find links for downloads of the data. We have also set up an interactive data portal that anyone can use to create customised charts of the results, below. To get started:

GQR polled 3,102 people in Great Britain online between Friday, June 9th and Monday, June 12th. Results were weighted to be nationally representative of Great Britain by gender, region, age, education level, socio-economic grade and ethnicity. Further weights were applied to match turnout and vote share at the 2017 General Election, and vote share at the 2016 EU Referendum.

This project was led by Stan Greenberg and Peter McLeod, and advised by James Morris of Edelman.
