> YOUGOV: GREENS OUTPOLL LIB-DEMS IN EAST
> New polling has the Green
> Party on track to both finish ahead of the Liberal Democrats nationally
> and achieve the target of trebling the number of Greens in the European
> Parliament from two to six.
> Polling prepared by YouGov Plc on behalf
> of the Green Party (1), predicts the Green Party is on course to win 8%
> of the vote (see polling attached). The poll was conducted between 30
> April and 1 May 2014.
> The Green Party, which currently has two MEPs
> (Jean Lambert and Keith Taylor) are neck-and-neck with the Liberal
> Democrats. Greens are ahead of the Lib Dems in four of the nine English
> regions (the North-East, the North-West, Yorks and Humber and Eastern
> Region) with both parties polling on 11% in London.
> IN THE EAST OF
> ENGLAND, THE POLL SHOWS LIB-DEMS ON 6% WITH GREENS ON 7%.
> Bennett, Green Party Leader, said:
> "We have now entered the election
> period and Green candidates are finally getting a little more airtime
> and access. Voters are responding, whereas it seems the more voters
> focus on the Lib Dems the less likely they are to vote for them."
> Greens believe that if they can snatch 4th place in terms of seats, it
> is going to force Nick Clegg out.
> Rupert Read, a former Liberal
> Democrat, now lead candidate for the Greens in Eastern region,
> "Two years ago, the Liberal Democrats were split 50/50 on
> whether Clegg should lead them into the next election. We know that the
> debates were disastrous for the Liberal Democrats, and his tactical
> mistake boosted UKIP's campaign. Clegg's continued leadership of the
> party is under threat and the biggest story coming out of this election
> will be Clegg's resignation. That will depend on the Green Party result,
> more than that of UKIP. "
> Natalie Bennett continued:
> "When people
> hear about our worked-through policies - cleaning up our dangerously
> dirty air, turning the minimum wage into a Living Wage, providing more
> affordable housing and insulating every home - they vote Green. And when
> they vote Green they get Green. With a national swing of just 1.7% we
> can treble our number of MEPs."
