Dave vs. Ed: Who Won Your Vote Last Night?
David Cameron, leader of the Conservative Party, and Ed Miliband, leader of the Labour party, last night took questions from a studio audience as the campaigning period begins for this year’s elections.
The Channel 4 and Sky joint-broadcast was hosted by Jeremy Paxman, who first grilled Cameron and then his rival Miliband on behalf of the audience. The broadcast was watched by 2.6 million viewers on Channel 4.
During the interviews, Cameron claimed the Tories would be able to save an additional £10 billion in welfare cuts and urged audiences to think of the economy when choosing how to vote. Miliband responded to criticisms of not being tough enough to stand up to other world leaders, claiming, “Hell yeah, I’m tough enough.”
Snap polls after the broadcast suggest that Cameron won the debate by the close margin of 54% to Miliband’s 46%. But what do TVDaily’s users think?
