Mindtracking PMQs – Crowdsourcing v Punditry

Yesterday’s Mindtracker for PMQs was very interesting datawise for political geeks, over a thousand people (1,150 people between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m.) twiddled their knobs online, so the poll is statistically valid. In comparison Frank Luntz typically has only 30 people polled in a room.  Watch the video above to see how people responded in realtime.  The chart below shows how viewers scored the PMQs exchange at key points:

Overall yesterday was a win for William Hague. Crucially voters who defined themselves as being in the centre scored the contest as a win for Hague, even those who defined themselves as being on the left tended to think that Hague won the argument.  If you want to drill down the full analysis and get a look at a bigger chart it is all here.

Next week following PMQs the experiment will run across a number of blogs from across the spectrum.  Will be very interesting to compare differing responses from different readerships…

Quote of the Day

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
