Nearly 30% of voters in Doncaster would vote for Donald Trump if they could, a new survey has found.

As America goes to the polls today to choose between Joe Biden and Trump as the country’s next president, a study has been carried out to see how UK voters would choose if they were given the choice between the two men.

Doncaster was found to be one of the most pro-Trump places in Britain in the survey – but the study found that not a single UK constituency would return Trump as victor, with Biden triumphing across the country in a landslide.

The poll by Hanbury Strategy for Politico, revealed that three-quarters of British voters would back Joe Biden if they could vote in today’s US election.

The survey showed the Democratic candidate would win every single British constituency with Republican Trump missing out.

The survey — which gathered responses from 3,991 British voters between October 9 and 15 and then ran the findings through a model to calculate estimated results for each parliamentary constituency in Great Britain.

In Don Valley, 71.7% of voters would back Biden, with 28.3% for Trump, while in Doncaster Central, 70.4% would favour Biden with 29.6% backing Trump.

Doncaster North is the town’s most pro-Trump constituency, with 29.2% backing him, against 70.8% for Biden.

Hanbury Strategy Partner James Kanagasooriam, who led the research, said Brits would be “overjoyed to see the back of president Trump” if he loses this week.

“Supporters from each of the main British political parties are overwhelmingly in favor of Joe Biden winning,” he said. “The results suggest that U.S. culture wars don’t translate neatly across when they are imported to the U.K.”

However, Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, who joined Trump at a campaign rally last week, blamed British press coverage for the poll results. “[Trump has] been portrayed as a monster by the U.K. press. From the moment he took office, virtually every media organization, every public commentator has said bad things about him,” he said. “Even when he achieved remarkable things like the extraordinary deal in the Middle East, he doesn’t get any credit for it.”
