Are we a nation of protectionists?

The battle of ideas

For the third instalment of CapX’s series on the battle of economic ideas, Number Cruncher polled the British electorate’s views on trade. Tariffs “to protect British Business” are popular, but actually paying more for basic goods isn’t, while the biggest divide on the issue isn’t in fact economics. See the CapX writeup.

Tables are available here, and you can sign up to receive our updates here.

Number Cruncher interviewed 1,036 UK eligible voters online between 9th and 13th August. Data are weighted by age, gender, education, ethnicity and region to match the profile of the eligible voting population. Image credit: Dineshraj Goomany (CC BY-SA 2.0)
