This time, I asked 788 Grindr users in and around London who they’re supporting in this year’s general election.

Me: Good afternoon, XXL Horny. Which party are you supporting in the forthcoming general election?
XXL Horny: Labour. I defected earlier this year from The Conservatives when Mr Johnson became leader as I was one of his first career assassinations in a long night of job  dismissals both backstage staff like myself and cabinet MPs alike. The biggest cull in british political history. He is a dangerous charlatanic compulsive liar who cares about nothing and no one except his quest for power.
XXL Horny: Stereotypical politician on turbo powered crack.
XXL Horny: My defection was proven to be the right choice after the great purge of moderate MPs from my One Nation wing of the party. The Johnson Administration is One Nation in name only. The cabinet is filled to the brim with the most racist, lying, bigoted, wealthy serving, poverty ignorant members from the most loony tune extreme end of the party who think Mrs Thatcher didn't do enough. I'm disgusted.
XXL Horny: However what this country needs is change. A departure from market domination to a truly mixed economy of state and private enterprise to something of that seen in Western or Scandinavian Europe. I cite Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway as the way forward in tackling a wide range of problems that we face. Labour's current manifesto although promising a drastic increase in spending and
XXL Horny: Reprioritising our commitments would still have a slightly smaller expenditure than that of Germany who's economy is only slightly larger so the debt to income percentage won't be that much higher once the economic growth that will be created by the financial stimulus kicks in.
XXL Horny: Thursday is a once in a generation opportunity to make change happen whether it be on fairer taxation, social security, university tuition fees and lifelong learning, the NHS funding and provision, foreign affairs/defence, environmentalism, housing, energy bills, rail investment and bills, bus bills, BBC funding, technology, WiFi provision and the general cost of living. Brexit will also be dealt
XXL Horny: Labour will form a responsible exit deal that protects jobs, the economy and a wide array of protections first and foremost. That is the first role of any government is to protect its citizens. Labour's deal will do that as much as we can which does mean being in the Single Market and Customs Union. Almost a Norwegian arrangement if you like
XXL Horny: So this way we protect our citizens which is our primary goal whilst still exiting the European Union as far as we can which still respects the 2016 referendum result. So we are in no way insulting the majority leave voters by insinuating that they were wrong. But as this is a constitutional affair the deal we broker must be put to the people in another referendum of the two options that protect
XXL Horny: Our people - Labour's renegotiated deal or to remain. A deal that hurts our people we cannot put to the people as we would be contravening governments primary objective. This is a sensible way out whilst still giving people the opportunity to change their minds considering how flawed the last referendum was.

 

STATISTICS:

Of the 788 users I questioned, 270 responses were counted. 131 of these users settled on a party or candidate. Here are their results:

76.5% (101)Labour Party
12.1% (16)Conservative and Unionist Party
4.5% (6)Liberal Democrats
3.0% (4)Green Party
1.5% (2)Monster Raving Loony Party
0.8% (1)The Brexit Party
0.8% (1)Liberal Party
0.8% (1)Plaid Cymru

Here are the swings in support since my 2017 poll of London Grindr users:

Labour: UP 15.6%
Conservative: DOWN 3.5%
Lib Dem: DOWN 12.7%
Green: UP 3.0% (no votes in 2017)
Monster Raving Loony: DOWN 1.6%
Brexit Party: UP 0.8% (no votes in 2017)
Plaid Cymru: UP 0.8% (no votes in 2017)
Liberal Party: UP 0.8% (no votes in 2017)
UKIP: DOWN 3.1% (no votes in 2019)

A further 138 users responded, but did not settle on a party.

19 were undecided, and could not be swayed to pick a favourite.

Some voters who were undecided, or unwilling to express support for one specific party over the others, still gave some indication of their preferences:

3Anything but Conservative or Brexit
2Anything but Conservative
2Labour or Lib Dem
2Labour or Green
1Lib Dem or Green
1Anything but Labour
1Anything but Brexit

In any case where a Grindr user was undecided on their final vote, but still able to pick a favourite party, they were counted towards that party’s tally. However, I also took note of any second preferences they volunteered.

  • 1 Green supporter is also considering voting Labour.
  • 1 Labour supporter is also considering voting Green.
  • 1 Labour supporter is also considering voting Conservative.

17 polled do not support any party, or stated that they were not going to vote. This includes 1 user who intends to spoil their ballot.

23 polled are not eligible to vote. Of those who gave reasons, 15 are not British residents, 1 missed the voter registration deadline, and 1 is underage.

Other responses can be roughly categorised as follows:

15General bewilderment
10Cryptic or incomprehensible
8Explicitly declined to answer
8Comedy answers ("The General Erection Party", "The Naughty Lad Party", "UKIP" etc)
8Rage/bile
6Miscellaneous evasion
6Lack of interest
6Just laughed at me
6Too horny to engage politically
6Nudes

Thank you for reading. Vote Labour.
