Voters unenthusiastic about holding AV referendum on cost grounds says new poll

A new poll for tomorrow's Sun newspaper (conducted by YouGov) shows little appetite for the Government's proposed referendum on changing the voting system.

The wording of the question was as follows:

"Before the election the Conservative party criticised an AV referendum as likely to cost £80 million at a time when the government would be needing to make major spending cuts. In view of the government's current cuts in public spending, do you think it is an appropriate or inappropriate time to hold a referendum on AV?"

The responses were:

Appropriate - 35%
Inappropriate - 46%
Don't know - 19%
