Ignore England’s “squeezed middle” voters at your peril, warns Policy Exchange

A major new report, Overlooked but Decisive: Connecting with England’s Just about Managing classes, by leading think tank Policy Exchange examined the values and political attitudes of C1/C2 voters in 119 ‘permanent’ battleground seats in England that are likely to remain critical in future elections. These are the seats that both Labour and the Conservatives need to secure workable parliamentary majorities. 2011 Census data shows that in the vast majority of these marginal seats, C1/C2 voters make up over half of the electorate.
