Probably the same people "building" (read: CGIing) the new Royal Navy.

Wait until the US Presidential elections and lets see just how accurate there are here in the states.

Nobody here's gonna claim they are (well, except maybe a Canadian liberal or two).

"Within the margin of error" sounds so much better than "we got no f*cking idea what we're talking about."

They didn't predict the current majority government either. They had it a win for the other side if I recall too.

Sadly they've been basing all of their hopes and dreams on these polls.

The polls weren't wrong. There was a huge percentage of undecideds throughout the campaign. Some voted stay and more voted leave. The difference between the Leave and Remain final vote is smaller than the number of undecideds before the vote.

It was the analysts who were wrong. They saw that decided voters were favouring remain and assumed that undecideds had a tendency towards the status quo or would break like the average. They were wrong. Undecideds aren't just empty vessels that'll follow the pattern. They have reasons for being undecided.

Had to laugh when I read this Eagle. Took me back to our last provincial election here in BC. Polls had the lefties wining all the way until the ballots were counted. Look damn good on them too.

The polls were quite accurate actually.

It was usually 51-49 in favour of one or the other.

This is the second time in just over a year that we've been asking the question: "Why did the pollsters get it so wrong?" They got their prediction of the result of the 2015 General Election so wrong. They predicted there would be a Hung Parliament, like at the the 2010 General Election, and the formation of another Coalition Government (we had a Tory/Liberal Democrat coalition between 2010 and 2015). People were saying we may get a Tory/Ukip coalition or (something too horrific to even contemplate) a Labour/SNP/Green coalition. Instead, the Tories ended up winning outright, their first outright win in a General Election since 1992.
