Opinion polling for the next United Kingdom general election

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In the run up to the next United Kingdom general election, various organisations carry out opinion polling to gauge voting intention in Great Britain (i.e. the UK excluding Northern Ireland, which is always excluded from such voting intention surveys). Results of such polls are displayed in this article. Most of the polling companies listed are members of the British Polling Council and abide by its disclosure rules.

The date range for these opinion polls are from the previous general election, held on 6 May 2010, to the present day. Under fixed-term legislation, the next general election is scheduled to be held on 7 May 2015.

Graphical summary[edit]

UK opinion polling 2010-2015.png


The chart shows the relative state of the parties from 13 May 2010 to the date the next election is held, with each line's colour corresponding to a political party: blue for the Conservative Party (UK), red for Labour Party (UK), yellow for the Liberal Democrats UK and purple for the UK Independence Party. Each dot represents a party's results from an opinion poll displayed in the table below.

Poll results[edit]

Poll results are listed in the table below in reverse chronological order. The highest percentage figure in each polling survey is displayed in bold, and the background shaded in the leading party's colour. The 'party lead' column shows the percentage-point difference between the two parties with the highest figures. Throughout the present parliament, first and second place has without exception alternated between the Conservatives and Labour. In the instance of a tie, no figure is shaded but both are displayed in bold. The Liberal Democrats and the UK Independence Party have tended to hold either third or fourth place in each individual poll. Included in the 'others' column are smaller parties, the largest of which (by votes at the 2010 General Election) are the British National Party, the Scottish National Party, the Green Party of England and Wales and Plaid Cymru.

Methodology[edit]

Each polling organisation uses slightly different methodology in their collection of data; a brief description of each company's methods are as follows:

  • Angus Reid Public Opinion collect their data through online internet surveys, and demographically weight their data to be representative of the whole population in terms of age, gender, social class, the region of the country they live in and newspaper readership. Past vote weighting is used, and is calculated separately for respondents from Scotland and respondents from England & Wales, whilst those saying they do not know how they will vote are asked which party they are leaning towards, and any responses to this are used as a full response, whilst those still unsure being discounted from the final calculation of levels of party support.[5]
  • ComRes uses both telephone interviews and online surveys to collect their data, although all polls will be conducted using one method exclusively. All respondents are weighted according to gender, age, social class, household tenure, work status, number of cars owned and whether or not they have taken a foreign holiday in the previous three years. Both telephone and online polls are weighted according to past vote in the last general election, whilst telephone polls also use data from the last 12 ComRes telephone conducted opinion polls. ComRes compensate for those respondents who says they do not know by asking them instead which party they most clearly identify with, whilst all respondents are weighted according to likelihood to vote on a scale of one to ten, with respondents saying their likelihood of voting is less than four being discounted entirely, and respondents saying their likelihood is more than five being progressively weighted, with a five-out-of-ten likelihood being weighted as half a response and a ten-out-of-ten likelihood being weighted as one whole response.[6]
  • ICM also collect their data through telephone interviews, and also demographically weight their respondents according to their gender, age, social class, household tenure, work status and the region of the country they live in. They weight their respondents according to the levels of support a party received in the previous general election and the last 25 ICM opinion polls, and if a past vote is given, this is used to allocate a response to those who say they do not know how they will vote, although such a response is counted as only half of one whole response. ICM also weight their respondents as to how likely they say they are to vote, with respondents who say they are certain to vote given a higher weighting than those who are not as certain, whilst if a respondent did not vote at the previous general election, their turnout weighting is automatically reduced to half its value.[7]
  • Ipsos MORI collect their data through telephone interviews, and weight their respondents to be demographically representative of gender, age, social class, work status, work sector, household tenure and the region of the country they live in. They do not weight their data according to the way respondents voted at the previous general election, discount any respondents who say they do not know how they will vote, and only include the responses of people who says they are certain to vote in the final calculation of levels of support for each party.[8]
  • Opinium surveys are conducted online via web interviewing, drawing a sample of responses from the company's panel of around 30,000 people. This sample is representative of the adult population of Great Britain in the areas of age, gender, regional location, working status and social grade, as according to the latest Office for National Statistics data. Responses from different demographic groups are handled appropriately to compensate for differential response rates in these different groups.[9]
  • Populus: Populus conduct their surveys over the telephone, and weight all respondents according to gender, age, social class, household tenure, work status, the number of cars they own, and whether they have taken a foreign holiday in the past three years, to be representative of the whole electorate. Respondents are weighted according to their past vote and the levels of support for each party recorded in the previous 20 Populus opinion polls. Respondents who say they do not know how they will vote are allocated according to how they voted at the last general election, albeit at a reduced weighting of 0.5 for previous Conservative or Labour voters and 0.3 for previous Liberal Democrat voters. All respondents are also weighted according to how likely they are to vote, with those certain to vote given the highest weighting.[10]
  • Survation opinion polling is achieved through online surveys, and all data is weighted to represent the wider population of the United Kingdom in terms of gender, age, socio-economic group, religion, how they have previously voted, and how likely a person says they are to vote in the next general election. Respondents who are either undecided or refuse to state how they would vote are excluded from the final results, unless they have provided details of how they have voted in the past, in which case, that information is used to adjust the results accordingly.[11]
  • TNS-BMRB interview a representative sample of adults aged 18+. All interviews are conducted in respondents' homes, although the voting intention data is collected using self-completion methods. The data is weighted twice: firstly to match population totals for age, sex, social grade, working status, presence of children, 2010 voting patterns and region; and secondly, for voting intention questions only, an additional 'likelihood-to-vote' weight is been applied.[12]
  • YouGov collect their data through an online survey, and weight their respondents to be representative of the population as a whole in terms of age, gender, social class, identification with a political party, region of the country and newspaper readership. They weight their respondents according to how they voted in the previous general election in order to achieve a sample that is reflective of each party's level of support at that election, whilst those respondents who say they do not know who they will vote for are discounted from calculating levels of support for each party.[13]

Northern Ireland polling[edit]

Northern Ireland has a distinct political system to the rest of the United Kingdom and is thus excluded from the polls described above. There are many Northern Irish political parties, but those with MPs elected to the House of Commons are the Democratic Unionist Party, Sinn Féin, the Social Democratic & Labour Party, the Ulster Unionist Party and the Alliance Party of Northern Ireland. Polling in Northern Ireland is less frequent than in Great Britain.
