Green Party is the second most popular party among under 30s
Polling firm YouGov has released new analysis of its opinion polls conducted between 31 October 2023 and 17 January 2024. The analysis gives a detailed breakdown of polling by various indicators including age, class and gender. One of the most interesting elements of the analysis is the revelations regarding voting intention by age.
The analysis from YouGov suggests that the Green Party is now the second most popular party among the under 30s. Among 18-24 year olds, YouGov has support for the Greens at 14%. That’s ahead of the Lib Dems on 12% and the Tories on 9%. Only Labour has more support, with over half of the 18-24 age bracket apparently intending to vote Labour.
Similarly, among 25-29 year olds, the Greens are also the second most popular party. In that age bracket, the Greens are on 12%, ahead of the Tories on 10% and the Lib Dems on 9%. Again, Labour is the most popular among this age bracket, with more than half intending to vote Labour.
The analysis also found that support for Labour was higher than for the Tories in every age bracket except the over 70s.
On gender, YouGov has found that women are more likely to be supporting the Green Party than men. Overall, 9% of women are currently backing the Greens, compared to just 6% of men.
