Polls in the News
State of origin or state of disrepair?
Wednesday, 04 August 2010 11:52 | Written by Internet Thinking

The Australian has further analysis of Newspoll today which apparently shows that Labor support has slumped enough in Queensland and New South Wales to cost them the election.

Interesting theory, but is it true?

The latest Nielsen poll, results published in the Fairfax papers on July 31, gives the election to the Coalition by 52% to 48%. It's at the outer edge of where the polling results have been and could be just a statistical fluke.

So why do these commentators bother with polls if they know what happens in the real world better than the polls?

This is the election where Galaxy may prove or cruel their reputation. They have consistently put Labor lower than the other polling organisations, although still within the polling margin of error.

Gap closing, but gender gap stil there - Morgan

Morgan shows a closing of the gap between Labor and Coalition, but still gives a healthy margin to the government of 6%. The change is one percent, and therefore not statistically significant. What is really statistically significant is the gender gap.
