Blogging will be a bit quiet for the next couple of weeks, as I recharge the psephological batteries over Easter, and get myself ready for the next Welsh Political Barometer poll, which should be arriving in later April.
In the meantime – I thought at least some of you might like to be aware of an event that is being organised by the Wales Governance Centre, to be held in Cardiff on 17th May. This will be a half-day event to present some of the findings of the 2016 Welsh Election Study. Although there has tended to be overwhelming focus on Brexit since last June, we did actually have a national election in May last year. The 2016 Welsh Election Study, funded through a research grant by the Economic and Social Research Council of the United Kingdom, provided the most detailed study ever conducted of a devolved election.
On 17th May, we will be presenting some of the fruits of our labours for the first time ever. This will include evidence on the most detailed multi-wave survey of voters ever conducted in a devolved election; evidence from the first-ever detailed study of local campaigning in a devolved election; and some evidence from a ground-breaking study of social media activity in a devolved election.
For more information about the event, including how to attend, please see here.
