Caroline Dinenage has published the results of a survey of Gosport, Stubbington, Lee-on-the-Solent and Hill Head residents which reveal that just 11% of respondents think Ed Miliband would make a better Prime Minister than David Cameron.
Caroline's survey went live at the beginning of the month, quizzing respondents on local and national issues; it has received in excess of 300 responses so far. Of local issues, people were most concerned about crime and anti-social behaviour with 44% putting it at the top of their list. Meanwhile, nationally the greatest cause for concern was the NHS which polled 54%. Road improvements were also at the forefront of respondents' minds and 54% said that a new peninsular access road would make a difference to their day-to-day life.
David Cameron proved popular among residents, with 54% stating that he would be a better Prime Minister than Ed Miliband who mustered support from just 11% of respondents. 35% indicated that they were unsure who would make the best Prime Minister.
"Hearing about the issues that matter most to local people has been absolutely crucial to my role as this area's Member of Parliament. I am so pleased with the huge volume of responses we have received which offer a great insight into residents' views.
With a huge number of people expressing concern about road improvements and indicating that a Stubbington Bypass would improve their day-to-day life, our campaign for better road connectivity has been reinforced and I will go on fighting for the upgrades we so desperately need.
Unsurprisingly David Cameron was revealed to be considerably more popular than his Labour counterpart, mirroring the national trend of feelings towards Ed Miliband."
