The polling, however, has been reduced to a fizzle
After a period when referendum polls were coming out almost everyday there’s suddenly been a lull in the number of polls being published. It is now May 12th and just three surveys have come out where the fieldwork has taken place in May. All of them have been online. The last phone poll was completed on April 26th.
Hopefully this is a temporary interruption caused by last week’s range of elections and that the polling will soon get back to the intensity you would expect this close to such a crucial vote.
Meanwhile a special PB/Polling Matters Podcast Keiran Pedley and Leo Barasi look at the polling information that we currently have and discuss the state of the campaign. How confident should IN and OUT be? How should we treat Don’t Knows in opinion polls? What will turnout be and why does this matter? What are the key issues each side should focus on and who is best to make the case for Remain and Leave as we approach polling day?
The weekly TV show should return next week.
