Yesterday we noted how a panel of influential journalists, parliamentarians and thought leaders rated the London think tanks. The Centre for Social Justice and Policy Exchange won top marks.

we also held a vote of ConservativeHome readers and that produced a
very strong showing for The TaxPayers' Alliance in almost every

1,265 took part and this is how they voted:

35% voted the TaxPayers' Alliance as the most effective overall think
tank in influencing the national debate. The Centre for Social Justice
won 12% of the vote. Policy Exchange 10%.

40% thought the TPA had
carried out the most interesting economic analysis. Reform was next
with 9%. The Centre for Policy Studies and Policy Exchange tied with 8%.

thought the TPA would be toughest on any Conservative government.
Second placed in this category was Reform with 7% and MigrationWatch
with 6%.

20% thought the TPA had been most effective at nurturing
new talent. Second was the Adam Smith Institute with 15% and then
Policy Exchange with 14%.

The CSJ did win among readers in the
category of which think tank had been most influential on the Cameron
project – as it did with influentials. It won 25% of the vote. Policy
Exchange won 20%.  The TaxPayers' Alliance won 17%.
