Stockton South Constituency Poll – Survation for Unite the Union

On behalf of Unite the union, Survation interviewed 1084 residents of James Wharton MP’s Stockton South constituency by telephone.

Key findings:

  • Current voting intention (with change since 2010 general election):

CON 39% (0), LAB 37% (-1), LD 3% (-12), UKIP 18% (+15), OTHERS 3% (-2)

  • Top issues for the residents of Stockton South and their families: the quality of the local NHS hospitals and GP services (25%), employment opportunities (18%) and the impact of immigration (15%)

We also asked Stockton South residents about the US-EU trade agreement known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). We found that:

  • 63% oppose the inclusion of the NHS in this trade agreement, 18% support its inclusion and 20% don’t know
  • 60% think David Cameron should seek to exclude the NHS from the agreement
  • 51% think Mr Cameron should veto TTIP if he fails to get a guaranteed opt-out for the NHS. 17% think he should not veto TTIP and 31% don’t know
