After the recent negative media coverage over the YI former chairmen, Olly Neville, UKIP have fallen into fourth place (voting intentions for European Elections next year); UKIP were on 17%, but have now dropped to 12% – behind the Liberal Democrats.
Since the removal of Olly Neville and Richard Lowe, over their public support for gay marriage, and the Daily Mirror’s report into private messages on the party’s members forum, “Britain’s third party” has been on the receiving end of intense media scrutiny.
Of course, this is only one poll – we’ll have to wait until others are published to analyses whether or not the gay marriage debate is effecting UKIP’s appeal with voters.
