Populus Survey Boss Cooper Poll PooperTimes Headline Based On 61 Voter’s Views

This morning’s Times survey headline was based on just 61 votes! Head of Populus, Andrew Cooper, told the punters over at PoliticalBetting.Com that he “would not have put the headline they (the Times) did above the findings … Cameron has a (much bigger) lead when it comes to which of the two is judged more likely to win an election, unite the party, get it in touch with ordinary people etc. And all the poll questions on the Tory leadership indicate that Cameron attracts more support than Davis does from those not currently Conservative supporters.

Bookies raced to re-price odds for a second time yesterday when the full details of the survey were posted on the Populus website, with Davis’ odds collapsing back out from 3/1 to 5/1, Cameron’s odds shortened back to hot favourite. Cooper is blaming The Times for the headline. A second abberant poll for Populus would be very embarrassing, given they predicted a landslide for Labour at the general election.
