ELECTION 2017: How to get the most out of opinion polls without being led up the garden path

ELECTION 2017: How to get the most out of opinion polls without being led up the garden path

After the polling miss at the 2015 general election, many politicians and journalists loudly declared they would never trust polls again.

What causes terrorism? The combination of the horrendous terrorist attack in Manchester [and now, the attacks on London Bridge] and a British general election inevitably meant that this question would dominate political and media discourses. And so it has. Particular attention has, once again, been drawn to the role of western foreign policy, including that of the UK, as a driver of extremist violence.
