YouGov: Public Rate Only Nigel Farage Positively

yougov approval ratings

YouGov’s fieldwork was done on Thursday and Friday, so only partially covering the recent furore. Even so Nigel is way ahead of the other political leaders in terms of public approval. That is why they are all ganging up on him…

    taxi driver asked me which way I intended to vote and he said he’d been asking everyone for the last two or three weeks the same question. He said overwhelmingly the answer was UKIP. People can send a strong message without risking that numbnutz Millibland getting into government.

      By recent furore you mean the pretend media storm you helped whip up on m.u.r.d.o.c.h.’s orders? That not a single person in the real world gives the slightest shit about? Dream on fat boy.

      Yes and note that it is the racialist EU which is impoverishing Indian farmers by its biased ban on their mangoes, and pushing the costs of mangoes in the uk while lowering their quality. So simultaneously the EU manages to hit the Indian poor, the hard up Brits, and the Brits from India, and the mangoes eating Brits by depriving them of Indian mangoes

        I really don’t mate.

        I understand your dilemma, you are at once trying to extend your reach within the media, while also standing outside the cabal, but you must know that’s just not a viable or credible position. In some way you’re mirroring the LibDem’s problem – nuzzling up to power, making compromises, but trying to have it both ways and not be tainted – doesn’t work. They’re universally despised.

        The campaign against UKIP is disproportionate, dishonest and is uniquely skewed against us – Joe Public knows this. You know this. So why add to it?

        Come next Monday half the media world is going to be prostrating itself saying “why did we get it wrong…. how can we learn…” but it, again, will not be credible. No one is making mistakes here – it’s all intentional.

        UKIP are a bloody long way from perfect, but we are not crooks, not liars, not racists and we are the best chance this country has got. Ordinary people who are mightily pissed off and have come together to kick arse. Far and away the least shit option on the ballot.

          Frank,

          We report UKIP’s fuck ups, not pretend they don’t happen, what the legions below the line don’t seem to get is that we’re not going to ignore that even if we sympathise. The idea that this is something to do with The Sun column is bonkers. Nobody at The Sun has ever ever said a word to us about the political line we take. If you look at the output of The Sun it gives qualified support to the Tories in editorials and the reporting slant, columnists like Trevor Kavanagh, Tony Parsons and Guido are not without sympathy for UKIP, Jeremy Clarkson is Clarksonite and Ms Mensch is uber-Cameroon.

          No one gets sent a memo. No one with any self-respect is going to take the party line with unquestioning fidelity.

          That is the reality. Nigel knows he is under the microscope because he is approaching the tipping point. His political-crack-smoking followers think there is a conspiracy and nothing will change their mind.

          We’re not UKIP or Tory fan boys, we’re a news site, with strong views.

          Cheers.

If he had any experience of life outside of the Westminster bubble, he would know exactly why Ukip will do well on Thursday, despite the coordinated campaign of smears. It is very simple really. We are fed up with the ruling class. We are fed up with their wars. We are fed up with their lies. We are fed up with their taxes. We are fed up with their regulations, their bans, and their “behavioural nudging”. We are fed up with the consequences of uncontrolled immigration, which is testing the traditional tolerance of this nation to its limits. And on all of these matters, we agree with Nigel. So, Guido, which side are you on?

            Reporting it isn’t the issue. Balance is the issue. As I long time reader/contributor on this site I and many others have seen the not so subtle switch since you took up your column in the Sun. Red top sensationalist language where previously it was incisive and to the point. You claim to be not part of the MSM but the words aren’t backed up by the deeds. MSM go wild on a subject, you follow. Previously you set the agenda on many occasions.

            Are you getting it yet?

            You’re right, this site is for news, that can’t be ignored. But do you really, really believe that the full blown attack, for that is what it undoubtedly is, on Farage and UKIP is news? It was, but now it’s common knowledge what’s going on. I come on your site for something different, something the MSM will not report for fear of upsetting the applecart. I used to get it, no longer.

            I would be thinking the same if the majority of the subjects were attacks on Cameron, Milliband or Clegg.

      Common Man says:

      Why is UKIP getting such strong support ?

      Well part of is that the public are so tragically unrepresentated by Politicians and the MSM.

      With the unprecedented and completely disproportionate UKIP smearing taking place across all media platforms including political blogs such as this, voters are rightly feeling less and less represented.

      We all understand the spring revolutions in the middle east against establishment dictatorships like Egypt have to a large degree, only been possible because of the internet and the free dissemination of information. No one argues with that thesis.

      However, the similarities between these spring uprisings and the UK are strong. Now, we haven’t had a dictatorship, but we do have an establishment cartel / duopoly….

      5 years ago who had an internet enabled smartphone that could see UKIP tweets and speeches in live realtime… And be able to fact check them on Wikip edia…Noboddy had that ..

      There has been an internet revolution in the middle east, only because of technology it’s happening in the UK at the same time…

      The dissemination of information is blowing wide open the middle east dictatorships, just as it is the UKs establishment political elites cartel.

      That’s why UKIPs support doesn’t fit the “normal” models… That’s why it transcends historic tribal party loyalties.

      Which is why smears from the msm and political blogs just won’t work… It’s 15 years out of date, like a doctored photo of Kim Jongs new satellite that we all laugh at because the propganda is so childish … So the public treats with disdain the UKIP smears by the MSM and blogs.

      Things are a’changing, and they are chang’n for the better.
