Lib Dems get IT worker vote
A new study has shown almost 40 per cent of IT workers would put a cross next to the Liberal Democrat candidate in today’s election.
The Liberal Democrats will be shaking the hands of IT workers after today's election, as a new poll suggests they are the favoured party of the sector.
The Conservatives didn't fair too badly with 28 per cent of the sector giving them the vote. However, Labour trailed behind in the poll with only 15 per cent claiming they would cross their ballot paper in favour of Gordon Brown.
There was a significant 18 per cent who would vote for other parties but, after a campaign that has fought solidly for the floating voter, only five per cent were undecided.
John Salt, web site director at Totaljobs.com, said in a statement: "Since the final debate it is clear that the vast majority of those looking for jobs in IT have decided who they are going to vote for and by quite a margin they have decided that the Liberal Democrats are the party for them."
Salt claimed that the party's good online strategy, promise for a better broadband network and pledge to repeal the Digital Economy Act has won over many in the IT sector and "persuaded [them] that they would be the best party to lead the country."
The poll questioned 1,300 jobseekers in the UK.
