Newark by-election: Does Nigel Farage have a woman problem? Empty Newark by-election: Does Nigel Farage have a woman problem?

Nigel Farage’s lack of appeal to women could have cost Ukip dear in the Newark by-election, the final poll before votes were cast has suggested.

Ukip’s hopes of winning their first parliamentary seat were dashed early today when the Conservatives won a comfortable majority of more than 7,000 in the Nottinghamshire by-election.

The outcome could have been decided by a striking gender gap among voters in Newark, according to the Survation survey.

It found that more than twice as many men as women were planning to vote for Ukip. If women had backed the party in similar numbers, Mr Farage would today be celebrating his party’s first Westminster election victory.

Survation, whose overall findings were very close to the actual result, found 36.8 per cent of men in Newark planned to support Ukip, compared with just 16.8 per cent of women

They also appeal less to the younger generation and not being horrible but people tend to become more pessimistic with age and UKIP play onto that, through fear arguments and it shows more than anything that the vast majority of sensible women are not bought over by bullshit arguments that UKIP promotes.
Now that is something to be proud of.
