The Great 2014 Euro Elections Polling Race

May 25th, 2014

Which firm is going to come out on top?

There next few hours will be quite a nervous time for the pollsters because not too long after 10pm their final surveys will be able to be compared with the actual results.

As can be seen five firms had Ukip in first place with leads varying between 1% and 7%. The sixth firm, ICM, had LAB in the lead with Ukip in third. That poll, it should be noted, is the oldest.

Over the coming months in the run up to GE15 their success or failure at EP15 are likely to be referred to a lot.

This election has been highly unusual in that at one stage or another in the final three weeks all three parties have featured as race leaders.

Not too long to wait.
