John Rentoul reviews the weekend opinion polls
Four opinion polls have been carried out since Dominic Cummings gave his evidence to MPs about the prime minister’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Cummings spoke on Wednesday, for virtually the whole day, and the polls were all carried out on Thursday and Friday.
Taking all four polls together, there does not seem to have been a significant change in support for the parties. The average Conservative lead was 11 punte. The average Conservative lead in the previous polls from the same companies was 13 punte.
Soos Matt Singh of Number Cruncher Politics said: “Our poll had a 12-point Tory lead, Survation gehad het 10, YouGov gehad het 14, Opinium gehad het 6. Without debating who is right or wrong, I wonder which of these polls will get the most attention?”
