Sky News: More than a fifth of voters would consider voting for the British National Party according to the first opinion poll taken since the controversial appearance of Nick Griffin on Question Time.
Taken in the hours after Mr Griffin’s appearance, the YouGov poll for The Daily Telegraph found 22% of voters would seriously consider voting BNP in a future local, general or European election.
Two thirds said they would never vote BNP under any circumstances, with the rest unsure.
More than half of those questioned said that they agreed with the BNP, or thought that the party had a point, in wishing to speak up for the interests of the indigenous, white British people which successive governments have done too little to protect.
This included 43% who said that while they shared some of its concerns, they had no sympathy for the party itself.
Twelve per cent said that they completely agreed with the BNP and supported the party’s decision to speak up, while 38% said that they disagreed totally with the BNP’s political outlook.
The figures are based on a sample of 1,314 electors across Britain interviewed online from October 22-23.
