Pollsters’ Final Euro-Election Calls


euros-final-call

Two pollsters, Populus and ICM, called it for Labour the rest called it for UKIP. As far as Guido can tell IPSOS-Mori did not do a Euro-poll saying it was “too close to call”. We shall find out who was right and who was most accurate after tonight. You can still – at time of going to pixel – get a 20% return betting on UKIP to win or quintuple your money on Labour. Good luck…

N.B. Any pollster who feels misrepresented (they are sensitive types) should get in touch and we will correct the chart.

            It is an island mentality. If you live on a small island things get blown up out of all proportion, and your horizons are limited. People from those islands often bring their own limited experience and horizons to a new environment. I would hazard a guess that the immigrant West Indian population in London effectively treat their part of London as an island, and don’t venture far from it.

            You see the same in the native UK population in places like the Isle of Wight (which despite certain jokes really is an island of white people), the Channel Islands, and some rural/semi-rural villages, like the Durham pit village that I grew up in.

    Why should any pollster feel misrepresented? If they all produced the same numbers, then they would only have to spend their profits on differentiating themselves from each other in the market for pollsters. Stupid, of course. Their market differentiation is in the numbers themselves, which have been expertly finished with a special massage comprising a unique variety of secret, exotic snake oils to smell nice and to glow alluringly to a particular market segment.

    If ever a deep state needs to significantly adjust a result, it will have prepared the ground with the pollsters beforehand.

    Survation: Ukip GE polling @ 23%!

    From UK Polling Report:

    ‘Finally there was a new Survation poll for the Mail on Sunday. The fieldwork for the Survation poll didn’t start until late on Friday, so unlike the YouGov and Opinium polls most respondents will have had a chance to see the local election results. Topline figures there, with changes since Survations last pre-election poll, are CON 27%(-1), LAB 32%(-3), LDEM 9%(+1), UKIP 23%(+2). Survation show some of the highest UKIP scores anyway, but the 23% is a record high for UKIP even by their standards – the first in what I’d expect to be many polls showing a post-election boost for UKIP.’

    Making an assumption that with the exception of the Liberals and Labour, who are cheerleaders for a wannabe super state run by Germany and France (both of which have already reneged on a referendum), surely logic would dictate that the Tories, who have promised a referendum without strings would be top polling and Ukip second only by means of their obvious lack of control of the gears of state.
    My assumption is predicated on what I consider the not unreasonable assertion that most of the electorate, outside Westminster, are experiencing the underwhelming joys of Labour’s unfettered immigration and Europe’s open borders causing the huge problems with lack of housing,pressure on hospitals and education that we see today.

      These figures do surprise me. Malta generally has a high turnout in elections. 90% voter participation is not uncommon. However the general feeling that I get from people there on my fairly frequent visits is that they don’t want to be in the EU any more. Being Europe’s “southern outpost” (to quote some head bloke in the EU) isn’t working out too well for them. They are also getting rather sick of German domination.

      To quote one bloke I know “I want to stick a sign on the beach for all the w@gs who land here, with a big arrow on it saying ‘ITALY THAT WAY'”.

      Key to the modern world – the sinister groupthink

      http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/environment/10853279/Key-to-the-modern-world-the-sinister-groupthink.html#source=refresh

      “Some time back, a reader drew my attention to the book in which, 40 years ago, a Yale professor of psychology, Irving Janis, analysed what, with a conscious nod to George Orwell, he called “groupthink”. It is a term we all casually use (which even he derived from another writer), but he identified eight symptoms of groupthink. One is the urge of its victims to insist that their view is held as a “consensus” by all morally right-thinking people. Another is their ruthless desire to suppress any evidence that might lead someone to question it. A third is their urge to stereotype and denigrate anyone who dares hold a dissenting view.”

    “Power-crazed politicos

    When politicians are asked why they entered politics, the response is invariably the same. Turning to gaze nobly at a distant horizon, through moistening eyes, they intone ‘Because I wanted to change things’ – with the emphasis on the ‘I’.

    Roughly translated, this means ‘Iwant to see things done my way, regardless of what my constituents think they want’. The ethos, prevalent at Westminster across all parties is not to serve, but to rule.

    This is why they detest the idea of referendums. Issues that the electorate want addressed are ignored. Policies to which the majority are opposed are forced through without any attempt at constitution.

    We British should get over the notion that we live in a democracy: it’s an elective dictatorship.”

        The term elective dictatorship was used some decades ago by Lord Hailsham to describe the so-called democratic process in the UK.

        In fact it was coined by Garibaldi, one of the founders of the modern Italy, a multi talented individual who wanted his country to shake free of Habsburg dominance and pursued irredentist ideals resulting in the Risorgimento. In the process his home town of Nizza, now Nice, was ceded to France by Cavour and he organised resistance to this, including riots.

        Back to Hailsham, he was aghast at the way Harold Wilson could pass so many laws with such a small majority. He felt it was not reflective of the will of the people in the same way a larger majority might have been but was simply achieved by manipulating MPs. Take note, oh ye modernisers!

        The curious thing is that many people from all quarters have been arguing for the end of the House of Lords because it does not have a democratic foundation. The reality was that, when it was more powerful, it often stood against the government of the day, whether Labour or Conservative. The irony is that the reduction in the influence in the House of Lords has led to less democracy and not more. You will never see this argued in the media but I fervently believe it to be true.

        The Law of Unintended Consequences was never better illustrated than this.

        Elective Dictatorship is thus an even greater problem now than it was then.

      4/6/2006 – Dateline BBC Television – London

      Gavin Estler ” What’s wrong with white guys by the way ?”

      Yasmin Alibhai-Brown ” I don’t like them. I wnat them to be the lost species in 100 years “.

      25/8/2008 – Channel Five Television – The Wright Stuff

      During a discussion regarding the employment of white men

      Yasmin Alibhai-Brown ” Take his advice, don’t apply. It would be great if you lot went away, white middle class men. We’d just walk in wouldn’t we ”

      When asked “Is that not a racist comment ?”

      She replied ” Of course”

        The BBC don’t employ her regularly to fill their race quota but to fill their special needs one.

    My above post took a swipe at the political establishment by mentioning standard deviation – but there is a serious side to this too.

    Look at the above figures and you will see that there is a variation between the highs and lows (per party) of as much as 8%. That is a truly enormous range and is worthy of further thought.

    Traditionally a sampling error of ±2.5% is accepted. When things are close, it makes it especially difficult to forecast.

    If you add that variant onto these figures, you are looking at a variation of over one third of the findings. In my book, that makes these figures almost worthless. Neither is taking an average of the figures going to help. What is at question here is the entire methodology.

    The 1992 GE was the last time that the pollsters got it so spectacularly wrong. They should really re-examine their whole process as it is simply giving us junk information.

    One more important point here. If the figures do closely coincide with one of the above, you will hear the media ignoranti, and the pollster firm itself, crowing about their accuracy.

    It will be complete tosh! Some one, maybe, gets lucky here. That does not mean their system is sound. People forget almost sooner than they learn. We are in uncharted waters here.

    Watch how this develops and see…
