How do supporters of different parties see themselves?

If you’re a Tory supporter, you’re more likely to think you’re funny, friendly, successful, intelligent, disciplined, confident and patriotic. You narcissists, you.

In a survey of 1,566 people conducted by YouGov the party topped Labour, Liberal Democrat and Ukip supporters in seven of nine traits they believed they held.

Eighty-five per cent of Conservatives believed they were funny, while Lib Dems thought they were the least funny, with 22 per cent saying they were ‘not very’ or ‘not at all’.

Throughout all parties, over 90 per cent of people believed they were friendly. In addition, 95 per cent and 91 per cent of Conservative and Labour supporters respectively believed they were intelligent, compared to 89 per cent of Lib Dems and Ukip supporters.

Come now people, we’re not all perfect.

Conservatives and Lib Dems tied in terms of believing they were successful, 70 per cent of both parties’ supporters, while only 54 per cent of Labour supporters believed they were successful.

Ukip supporters were most likely to believe they were good looking and least likely to believe they were awkward, whereas Labour supporters were least likely to believe they were patriotic or confident.

Liberal Democrats were least likely to believe they were funny, good-looking or disciplined.
