Anyone reading this post is probably astute enough to treat dodgy polls with the disdain that they deserve. For example, MRUK and Scottish Opinion are quite simply not thorough enough in their polling methodology to provide results that are worth any real consideration. Well, this is my assumption as they don't even release their polling methodology. As a Statisticial, I find this pretty amazing really. I also question the motives of these organisations, suspecting the release of their poll findings is much more politically motivated than YouGov and System 3.
Of all the polls I prefer System 3, I think YouGov is slightly biased towards SNP as it reaches out to internet-users only, a younger group than Labour/Tory which is arguably more of a senior demographic.
Anyway, just thought I'd mention that in the light of this recent poll .
I know I'm biased but I simply refuse to believe that this is a fair reflection of Scotland's voting intentions as things stand.
