The New Welsh Political Barometer Poll12 February 2016
Just a brief post about the new poll. It was conducted on Tuesday to Thursday this week, and results will be released next week – starting with voting intention figures for the National Assembly election on Monday morning.
We have various other ‘goodies’ for you to look forward to: Westminster voting intention, EU Referendum voting intention, leader ratings for all the main UK and Welsh leaders (including those for the Greens), and a couple of questions about the main issues that people think are important.
A brief point about methodology. YouGov’s revised sampling and weighting scheme has not yet been rolled out. So for the next poll we will be following the same procedure as the last few ones in Wales, which includes weighting by 2015 general election vote. This does at least mean that there should be no problems with comparing the findings of this poll directly with those of our previous few Barometer polls.
I hope that I have whetted your appetite. Not long to wait now. And there is plenty of interest to come, I can assure you…
