Andrew Cooper is the PM’s pollster and he is fanatically pro-EU. His Twitter feed is something to behold.
Remember how at the general election the polls said it was really close, but it turned out not to be?

Yes, Guido remembers that it was Andrew Cooper’s polling firm Populus which built a super-clever model of all the polling data for the general election and concluded there was just a 0.5% of a Tory majority. This may have had something to do with his pique at being kicked off the Tory campaign by Lynton Crosby…
More or less every single serious person in the world thinks leaving the EU is a stupid idea. On the other hand Boris reckons it'll be fine.
