8 out 10 People favour Proportional Voting

A survey carried out between the 28th & the 31st May by ConRes, on behalf of the Independent newspaper, reveals that nearly 8 out of 10 (78%) of those surveyed believe that 'The first-past-the-post system for elections to the House of Commons should be replaced by a system that reflects more accurately the proportion of votes cast for each party'.

When asked if 'The political horsetrading which followed the inconclusive General Election result showed that an outright win is much more desirable than a hung parliament' 7 out of 10 people agreed with the statement.

However there wasn't a decisive answer to the question of whether 'Britain is better off with a coalition government that it would have been if either the Conservatives or Labour had won the election outright' with an almost equal split of opinion, 45% agreed whilst 43% disagreed.
