The “ever so stable poll” ain’t any longer
Above in the chart are the figures for today’s Populus online poll which show a big change on Monday’s survey. As can be seen the Tories are down 5 and UKIP up 4.
I asked the firm whether there have been any weighting or other methodological changes which might explain such a big shift in such a short period of time. The response I got from Rick Nye is below:-
“No. But it is August and weâ€™ll see on Monday if itâ€™s an outlier or a harbinger.”
We’ll just have to wait.
