If it was going to be anyone, it had to be Graeme
It would seem to me that Polls.uk would be the most authoritative source for Polls in the UK.
looks a very useful site and some great local polling info. My wife and I were only talking about this recently i.e. where are the polls that show brexit party polling in key marginals, and labour leave areas? Looks like this site provides the info that other polling companies have failed to provide.
May I suggest you actually read the Sky News article? The information on Graeme's website is incorrect and misleading.
There is a good page on Wikipedia with a list of all legitimate Opinion Polls undertaken in the run up to the election, including constituency ones which might be of interest to you.
well I'm very pleased to have been made aware of this site. Nice, clear and concise information - certainly helps to see local polling information displayed this way - much better than most of the other polling sites which focus purely on national polling trends.
Seems polls are only 'dubious' if they give the 'wrong' answer.
Shame these 'experts' got it wrong with brexit and trump.
I picked up manifestos.co.uk the other day, I wonder what controversy I could stir up with this
Polls.uk can't be trusted the second you know who owns/runs the site.
Disagree. Known Graeme a long time and 100% trustworthy. You may not like his niches but the statement about trust is not factual.
I didn't mention the site shouldn't be trusted because of the niches he operates in. However, the fact you bring up about the niches likely being the reason I say that, shows you know exactly why people wouldn't want to trust the site/him.
EDIT: I won't drag this side of the conversation out further, as the thread isn't about discussing his moral compass.
Agreed that a public forum isn't the place to post about someone ike that
I'm just waiting for Denys to pop up and start talking about libel
Do you trust the mainstream polls? is the pertinent question asked on polls.uk today.
New, exclusive poll published on Acorn Domains.
Do you trust polls.uk
Don't Know: 28.0%
Date polled: 28/11/19
Sample size: 1008
More polls being published soon.
That's a broader question. To answer that, you need to ask the question; why should you trust them/not trust them? The mainstream polls in most cases have a way of knowing how the data was collected etc. You can then decide if you think that's a suitable/correct way to get to the outcome they show.
PollsUK simply says, here are the numbers and we're not telling you how we reached those numbers. We just got them from "direct and indirect sources" - If PollsUK stated what those sources were, he wouldn't be getting shit on by the media. (Well, unless those sources were shit also)
Time will tell how accurate the polls are - I think we need to get this in context - polling is not yet a regulated area, thank goodness. The mainstream polls are often biased - and inaccurate and don't give useful local information.
I can't see what all the fuss is about. The samples I looked at on polls.uk quoted the source...
Latest polling from YouGov, Polling was conducted 15th 16th 17th of November.
Latest polling from ComRes, conducted on behalf of the Telegraph. Polling was conducted 11th and 12th of November.
I'm sure the polls are likely as unbiased as most other ones
