Corbyn Beats Cameron as Nation’s Preferred Flatmate

In a recent poll commissioned by UK youth charity, The Mix, out of the two, the nation has voted in favour of Jeremy Corbyn as their preferred first flatmate beating Cameron by a marginal 2%.

The poll produced by YouGov comes as The Mix launches Home Truths – a free one stop shop tool aimed at helping young people to cope with the pitfalls of independent living, after moving out for the first time.

In the same poll, when asked to choose between the four, Adele and her down-to-earth personality overwhelmingly beat fellow popstars Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Beyonce as the preferred songstress to live with.

Of the 18-24 year olds who responded, 38% preferred Harry Styles as their first flatmate, over Justin Bieber (coming second with 35%) and Zayn Malik lagging as the least preferred with 27%.

Of those who had an opinion, the poll also revealed:

  • When asked to choose between Oscar winners Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo Di Caprio respondents were divided, with 51% voting Jennifer and 49% voting Leonardo.
  • On the sports front, Lewis Hamilton ranked top with 45%, Andy Murray in second with 40% and Wayne Rooney in last with 15%

CEO of The Mix, Chris Martin, says: “Although the prospect of a celebrity flatmate is fun, living independently is increasingly becoming a prominent issue for under 25s as they struggle to make that big transition.

Over the past year our services have seen over 203,422 young people seeking help with issues relating to housing and independent living, a 23% increase from the year before. Be it managing a budget, confrontation with a new housemate, unexpected bills or the mould taking over the entire bathroom – we provide that help and support they need."
