Values and voting

How to measure levels of populism, and how that cuts across traditional measures of economic left/right and liberal/authoritarian sentiment.

Populist sentiments are more common on the left than the right of the economic dimension, and authoritarians are more likely to be populist than liberals but the patterns are complex…

The Labour party win a clear majority of the votes of those on the ‘liberal’ and ‘centre’ left.

In fact, the Conservatives gained greater share of the left-authoritarians (regardless of populist sentiment).
