Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

This is one of those situations where opinion polling is probably pretty meaningless as it relates to an election most people believed would never happen. However fwiw these are the % support figures for various parties at the end of March in the then hypothetical situation of the EP elections happening in the UK = compared to the 2014 election out turn.

2019 Poll
Date(s)       Sample    UKIP     Lab     Con   Lib Dem  Green  SNP  Plaid Cymru Others    

28-30 Mar     2,008     18%     30%     24%     10%     8%     4%     1%        5%    
22 May 2014     2014 EU election (GB) Results    
             16,017,366  27.5%  25.4%  23.9%   6.6%   7.7%*  2.4%  0.7%    

As can be seen from the above, the starting position for the campaigns indicated a significant decline for UKIP and gain for Labour and Lib Dems with everything else within the margin of error.

The last 5% on the poll row, is presumably other. While it can be hiding different parties, presumably it is mostly Brexit party. Still UKIP plus Brexit party is smaller than UKIP was in 2014.

Still early, but would be amusing to watch Farange's expression if his old wreck of a party beats his new one on name recognition. Party name, that is.

Don't forget the Independent group, who also don't appear to be polling well.

I had indeed forgotten about TInGe!

Maybe the voters has too?
