Supplementary notes

* The source indicates: "Over the last ten years, YouGov has carefully recruited a panel of over 800,000 British adults to take part in our surveys. Panel members are recruited from a host of different sources, including via standard advertising, and strategic partnerships with a broad range of websites. When a new panel member is recruited, a host of socio-demographic information is recorded. For nationally representative samples, YouGov draws a sub-sample of the panel that is representative of British adults in terms of age, gender, social class and type of newspaper (upmarket, mid-market, red-top, no newspaper), and invites this sub-sample to complete a survey."
This question was phrased by the source as follows: "Which of these political parties would you be voting for in an election?"
