Could YES really be ahead?
The above message from Ben Page, CEO of Ipsos-MORI, was posted less than an hour ago and has even affected the betting markets.
His suggestion that there is a poll about with a YES lead of one point is extraordinary giving yesterday’s numbers from ComRes showing a 66-34 split to NO.
My understanding is that there are three polls to come later today – Angus Reid, ICM and YouGov. Could it be that Ben has picked up a rumble about one of them?
Knowing Ben he’s not the sort of person to post information like this by mistake.
