Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Considering that voting is subjective and sometimes strategic - never mind local - I don't think it's possible to claim that votes are objective at all.

In my proxy constituency one of the sitting MEPs is a staunch pro-EU Labour remainer. He was re-elected by a comfortable margin - which wouldn't have happened if his supporters had decided they were voting for a pro-Brexit party.

The only true single-issue voters were TBP supporters, Greens, and many LibDems. The main parties, especially Labour, had a much more complex profile of support.
