    I will take it again and be a bit more strong on my agrees and disagrees.....

    Edit..new test.
    came out pretty much the same. Slightly more authoritarian, but still on the liberal side. Scary!!!!
    The thing when it comes to elections is that sometimes I would vote for a party I normally don't care that much for.
    In Norway I would normally vote for Hoyre which is the conservative serious party. To get the power they have to go into coalition with FRP which is way more right wing. Seeing the massive problems with immigration I would vote for FRP, knowing that Hoyre would still be bigger and run a responsible economic politic.

    I'm pretty surprised by my left leaning but not the libertarian tendencies

    I think a lot of the questions were stoked

    Economic Left / Right -2.75
    Libertarian -3.33

    I know there's a huge distrust in polls around here, and some of it is warranted of course, but can anyone explain the tightening of the polls over the past month? This represents the weighted averages of recent polls up until yesterday.

    Yes... Corbyn for all his social awkwardness and bumbling money-counting moments... is resonating with the public in a strange, Bernie Sanders type way.... he's just so damn honest.... and Teresa has gone from looking strong, assured and dominant, to looking like a one trick pony...

    Hell.. I am even thinking of voting Labour for the first time in my life... maybe that empathy gene lurks beneath.. 55

    OK, ok.. Labour winning would help my business more... selfish gene... 55

    Theresa May has not performed well.

    Youngsters (naive and lacking experience of life) seem to like the bearded one.

    I'm still voting Tory.

    Anyone with half a brain should see through the transparent Labour policies. They cannot even give the answers to how the sweetners will be funded.
    The youngsters think Corbyn is the dogs bollocks because he's promised free uni places, and the coffin dodgers don't like the idea of the Tory "dementia tax"

    I truly fear for the UK if by some awful fluke Corbyn and his band of racist, terrorist loving sidekicks get elected. It will put the country back years and years.

    Dare I say it, I like a lot of UKIP's policies, but, like the Lib Dems they are never in with a shout. All I can hope is they take some Labour votes away.

    I was very pro-Theresa up to a week or two ago.. and really did think Corbyn was unbackable... however, slowly but surely he is connecting with people in a way that Theresa is disconnecting... I still don't think Labour has a chance in hell... but it could end up being a lot closer than we thought next Thursday... Corbyn is coming across as un-political... and has an air of decency about him... it even makes you forget about his eccentricities...

    However far down Jeremy Corbyn was, he will simply have considerably more upside than Theresa May.
    May calling a snap election won't give him enough time to generate any traction though....

    I'm that stupid.... 55 that I may well vote Labour this time... mostly for selfish business reasons, but I think the Trump-effect has harmed Theresa... as well as seeing a "Remainer" trying to behave like a "Leaver" has put people off... and she hasn't helped herself by hiding away this election campaign... and then looking bad when off-piste in public... whereas Corbyn is looking more and more like the bloke in the street and less and less like a politician.. and it seems to strike a chord... shame about Theresa, who will likely still win, but may not have as much of a majority as she hoped.... I had high hopes for her.. but she does come across as a bit of a stage managed puppet...

    Nothing to do with policies or performance?

    Yeah policies as well.. Theresa has screwed up there too, backtracked and flipped a few times, whereas Corbyn has latched on to what is worrying most... the NHS, social care etc.... it's like Theresa is assuming that Brexit is all she should be concerned about and has forgotten about the aging population problem... instead seeing older people with equity as potential revenue earners... either poorly thought through or appearing as callous...

    ^But how can you vote for a party that has no idea how to finance all these promises. Increased taxation alone wn't cover it.
    And Corbyn will fuck up the Brexit negotiations without doubt.
