    glad you asked ross.... X)
    Is a major problem for pollsters and indeed people switching to the other side sans memory
    people forget (_;)

    Quick, everyone act surprised at that table. X)

    Well I tend to shop at Sainsburys, Waitrose and Coop and voted leave.

    I do go to Asda now and again and pop into Tesco Express as its opposite work.

    Don't shop in Iceland, Morrisons, Aldi or Lidl as they are not near me or I pass regularly.

    Getting a new shop here some say it will be a 'savers'
    but farm foods sound great
    no sainsbobs here even a local would be something

    Do you have a link for a poll for how education affected someone's vote? Or one for income?

    I don't have a degree and earn less than the avarage national salary and voted leave. Happy?

    I use all of them except ocado and I didn't even vote .. Think I need therapy thanks to this poll .

    People currently doing well for themselves vote for the status quo and vice versa shocker!

    Why are you taking it so personally? I'm not happy or sad knowing that, I'm simply interested in how demographics voted.

    This is fairly basic research that is done in so many industries but when it comes to Brexit people get so upset if they think that economics or education played a factor in voting.

    There are 24 UK Ocado Stores and There are 850 Iceland Stores also the vast majority of those Ocado's are very close to London,

    Just sayin' like.

    There's a difference between stereotyping and facts and figures.

    What do you think of the so-called 'education divide' in voting that seems to be emerging? Isn't that a cause for concern?

    Figures aren't facts in case of polls where small data samples can be manipulated, i.e. the petition made the day after the referendum wanting another referendum (mostly ineligible voters). In this case, sample data of approx 100,000 people have a higher probability of being factually incorrect.

    The education divide is new to me as you are genuinely the only person i've noticed who's brought up a divide in income and education in all discussion and article related to the referendum.

    This is fairly basic research that is done in so many industries but when it comes to Brexit people get so upset if they think that living down south and having more money factor in voting.

    I am not surprised to see the supermarkets at the cheaper end of the market come out ahead as its those in the lower income jobs that have seen the most competition coming from wave after wave of uncontrolled immigration over the past few decades and seen their wages and earning potential slashed while those at the upper end of the pay scale have seen the price of the services they use falling due to the wages of the poorest stagnating.

    My personal economics and also my education played no part in my vote if I am honest as I don't do bad in life ....What played a part in my vote is that I opened my eyes to my surroundings both visually and also statistically and decided that I didn't like the changes that were being forced upon me by staying in the EU
    O and also for your research i am from up norf so maybe less "culturised" ?

    I don't know exactly how YouGov conducted this survey tbh
    however they are a very well respected market research company
    with a huge online 'panel' this is just a very very small part of what they do
    and has just been highlighted as a bit of fun/advertising

    The thing that gets me is.....
    people moan about 'pollsters' but then what are they doing on a shopping website then ?
    this is important these are the people who largely decide what will be thrown in your face

    That's fair enough. If you haven't taken much of an interest in the way voting went then that's fine, but look at the figures for postgraduate voters and voters without a degree if you're interested.

    Or just look at the areas that voted remain and see if there's anything interesting.

    of course the irony is, we'll all be shopping at iceland pretty soon, bitter little shoppers.

    Reckon you won't be shopping at Sainsbury's and Waitrose next year. oO

    I like how you initially request poll data showing education background of voters and then go on to suggest you already have the data. The thing is, you also know that there isn't an overwhelming majority of degree holders who voted remain.

    all the remoaners saying there will be no jobs and look someone employing people to do pointless surveys. happy days.
