We have commissioned new polling to find out what people expect from their new Mayor in 2017.
We commissioned ComRes to survey 2,500 people across the five biggest city-regions due to introduce ‘metro-mayors’ in May 2017 – Greater Manchester, Sheffield City Region, Liverpool City Region, the North East and the West Midlands. Here are four things the polling results reveal:
We’ll be discussing the results of the polling in a series of events in Northern and Midlands city-regions during the summer. For more information and to register, visit our events page.
ComRes interviewed 2,538 British adults online within the wider ‘city-regions’ of Manchester (n=506), Sheffield (n=504), Liverpool (n=503), North East (n=511) and West Midlands (n=514) between 8th and 18th April 2016. Respondents were sampled to be representative by age and gender of adults aged 18+ living in their respective city-region. ComRes is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules.
