New Angus Reid Poll – Change of Methodology

There was a new poll on the Political Betting site last night from Canadian pollster Angus Reid which has caused some confusion. Figures were published and then changed due to some change in the weighting methodology. Both sets of figures are shown below:  

            Conservative              39/37

            Labour                       27/28

                                                                                         Lib Dem                     23/22

Changing the figures after publication and citing weighting will not do a lot for Angus Reid’s credibility as a newcomer to UK polling. Due to the confusion I have not shown changes from their last poll but either set of results suggests some narrowing of the Conservative lead.
