Nigel Farage is the political leader most likely to be considered 'weird', according to a poll by ComRes and ITV News.
The survey showed that, despite Ukip’s lead in the polls, Nigel Farage is the leader most likely to be considered “weird” by the British public. 31% of Britons think he is the leader that best fits the description, compared to 23% who say the same of Ed Miliband, 9% who say Nick Clegg.
Just 7% of those polled thought Prime Minister David Cameron fitted that description.
ComRes interviewed 2,061 British adults online between 16th and 18th May 2014.
