Recent YouGov polling shows UKIP on 17%, up on the party's performance in the General Election as 2016 begins and ahead of elections this coming May.
UKIP Leader Nigel Farage said: "This poll shows us up from the General Election, despite what some commentators would have you believe."
UKIP Deputy Leader Paul Nuttall: "It is clear that UKIP is not going away any time soon. On the 5th May voters in all four corners of the United Kingdom will have the opportunity to vote for UKIP and I have every confidence we can make a strong showing in London, Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and in the English local elections as well as the elections for Police and Crime Commissioners."
