Opinion Pollsters Feast on BNP Media Frenzy as Support Continues to Grow

Opinion pollsters have never had it this good. Previously they refused to even acknowledge the British National Party’s existence, but now new polls claim that 22 percent, or 66 percent, of voters support BNP policies — depending on which poll one cares to believe.
A lot of that must be taken with a pinch of salt, but there can be no denying that there has been an increase in support for the BNP. Here are the latest figures:
- As of 4pm on Sunday afternoon, some 4,000 new people have registered to be signed up as new members once the recruitment freeze has been lifted. It must be remembered these are not simple ‘enquiries’ but are people determined to join the party.
- Over 10,000 new people have signed up to our email mailing list — a 25 percent increase in two days.
- This means that the total number of new people brought into the orbit of the BNP in the two-day period around Question Time now stands at 14,000.
- This amounts to 38 percent of the total figure brought into the BNP during the whole of the European Election campaign.
- If all of the 4,000 new registered members join in the near future, this will take the total amount of money raised for the BNP over the Question Time period to nearly £150,000.
These figures indicate that the BNP’s efforts during the Question Time period amount to a titanic recruitment victory and a devastating own goal for the far leftists and the BBC who set up the programme as an attack on the party.
The polls make interesting reading: According to ICM, two thirds of voters think that the Tories, Labour and Liberal-Democrats have “no credible policies on immigration.”
The poll goes on to claim that 54 percent of voters say there are too many immigrants and 65 percent believe immigrants get preferable treatment in housing and other benefits.
The poll’s accuracy was called into question when it claimed that “one third of voters believe in a core BNP policy that people from ethnic minorities should lose all state benefits, including NHS treatment, to pay for a ‘resettlement policy’ for those wishing to leave the country.”
This is, of course, complete nonsense, as there is no such BNP policy. A lie like that thrown into the poll results (which were published today in one of the Sunday rags) calls them all into question.
BNP supporters should always bear this in mind when reading or discussing any of these polls, as there is no guarantee that any of them are accurate or have been conducted in a scientific manner.
The ICM poll goes on to say that 44 percent of voters believe that the white working class has been abandoned by the other political parties.
More than half of those questioned said they agreed with the BNP, or thought that it “had a point” in wishing to “speak up for the interests of the indigenous, white British people … which successive governments have done far too little to protect.”
This included 43 percent who said that, while they shared some of its concerns, they had “no sympathy for the party itself.”
Twelve percent said they completely agreed with the BNP, while 38 percent said they “disagree totally with the BNP’s political outlook”.
A YouGov poll for the awful Daily Telegraph claimed late last week that 22 percent of voters were “prepared to consider voting for the BNP.” The survey found that 22 percent of voters would “seriously consider” voting for the BNP in a future local, general or European election. This included four percent who said they would “definitely” consider voting for the party, three percent who would “probably” consider it, and 15 percent who said they were “possible” BNP voters.

There is no doubt that the lynch mob bear pit Question Time circus has had an effect on BNP support. Many ordinary members of the public saw for the first time the reality that all the other parties are actually identical, and that the only party which is truly different is the BNP.
This was obvious in the way that they all united when confronted with the BNP, from extremist Communists right through to Tories.
In addition, the blatant unfairness of the changed Question Time format, which was primed to be little more than an hour of ‘attack Nick Griffin,’ aroused sympathy in many viewers who otherwise would have been apathetic to the party.
Party activists must always be aware that in politics, nothing comes without hard work. Leafleting, speaking to the voters in person and canvassing will ultimately win the day.
But the establishment’s own goal of the last week has certainly helped.
