How many Tory members voted Brexit Party? YouGov’s findings are almost identical to our pre-election survey results
The match-up between the two sets of numbers is extremely close.
Lord Ashcroft: My EU election poll. Most former Tory voters say they will stay with their new party at the next election.
Exploring how people voted in last week’s election, why they did so, and when they made up their mind is instructive.
