All about election polls

We have all heard the whining from the left, in the case of Martyn Bradbury outright howling, that opinion polls are wrong, bias, or whatever. There is a propensity too, especially from the left, to cling to hope in the form of Horizon polls or manipulated iPredict stocks.

Stats Chat Blog has compiled a good reference to assess political polls:

If you’re reading, watching or listening to poll results, be aware of their limitations. But note that although polls are fraught with difficulties, they remain useful. Any pollster who is open about the limitations of his or her methods is to be trusted over those who peddle certainty based on uncertain or biased information.

I understand that they wil be doing some analysis of polls and polling companies.
