An election is one thing but would you want anyone you vote for as a neighbour?

In a survey of over 900 households, it was revealed that:

- 21% of under 25’s would most like to have Nigel Farage as a neighbour (but that also means that 79% wouldn't)
- David Cameron proved to be overall favourite with 31% of UK homeowners choosing Cameron over rivals
- Living next door to Farage proved popular with men, but women prefer Clegg or Miliband
- Ed Miliband proved popular with full time students, coming out top with 31% of the vote, compared to just 19% for Cameron

A summery of the main findings below also reveals that the Green Party's Natalie Bennett didn't do well at all.

So, do you agree with the findings? Who would you want to live next door to? Do you think these findings reflect the mood for the election overall?
