    This result does not surprise me. A telephone poll contacts a fairly narrow subset of mainly middle -aged and upwards people who are in themselves an unrepresrentative group as they are the minority that are still accesible by phone.
    You can say with a degree of certainlty that the percentage of people contacted under the age of about 35 will have been minimal and the results are not really valid.
    On these figures I would say we could well be neck and neck or better.
    We got these unbalanced polls continually before the Scottish election.
    I did a lot of phone canvassing myself but have stopped doing so as you can’t reach a representative group of people that way anymore

    1. Thank you, it’s good to get a bit of insight into the behind-the-scenes of these polls.

    Yes, I remember the Yougov poll telling us the SNP vote was dropping the Sunday before the May Election. I really trust unionist polls and I believe in Santa.
