UK Survey: Level of political interest in Great Britain 1986-2012

This statistic shows the level of political interest in Great Britain from 1986 to 2012. In 2012, 32 percent of respondents had not much or no interest. This is however a decrease of 7 percent from 1986. At the same time, there was a 7 percent increase in respondents with a great deal or quite a lot of interest. So, despite declining identification with particular parties, general interest in politics has apparently not waned.

How much interest do you generally have in what is going on in politics...a great deal, quite a lot, some, not very much, or, none at all?
