The survey also indicated 53% felt the politicians of today lack the gravitas and skill compared to previous generations.

46% suggested their voting intentions in general elections had stayed consistent over the years, with 19% saying they'd changed from the party they'd supported when younger; 31% 'changing from time to time' and 4% 'often switch around'.
