As the Mile End Institute's signature research project, conducted in association with YouGov, Polling London seeks to investigate Londoners' thoughts on life in the Capital, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the performance of iconic institutions (such as the Metropolitan Police and Transport for London), and the social, economic, and political challenges facing Londoners in 2022. In advance of key local elections, we also ask Londoners what they believe the Mayor of London and the Capital's 33 councils should be focusing on in the next four years.
Launched in March 2017, Polling London is led by Farah Hussain, the MEI's Director, Dr Patrick Diamond and Professor Philip Cowley.
