Tumblr user Tom Court, who last year polled hundreds of Grindr users on their Scottish independence referendum voting intentions is back, and asking users their intentions ahead of next week’s general election.


Last year’s poll, conducted by Tom Court, and published on his Tumblr page, asked 655 users the same question: “Do you think Scotland should become an independent country?”

Writing on his blog, Court explains that after polling 1024 Grindr users, 436 responses were counted, and 196 had committed to voting for a particular party.

With a clear lead, the SNP gained 61.73% of the vote, Labour was second with 11.73%, and the Tories in third with 9.18%.

The results are available below.

61.73% (121) SNP
11.73%(23) Labour
9.18%(18) Conservative
7.14%(14) Green
3.57%(7) UKIP
3.57%(7) Liberal Democrat
1.53%(3) Monster Raving Loony
1.02%(2) BNP
0.51%(1) Socialist
